not that i doubt you guys of course, this is my first build and I wouldnt be anywhere without you guys but I always had it in my head that you needed at least 1000W to use 2 gpus

thanks for all the help guys
Yes it will... just fine.


I only have a 1k w because I plan on going SLI 580s and didn't know as much as I know now when I bought it.

I'm going to second the Seasonic choice. It is a QUALITY PSU.

I believe there's a 750 and a 850 model. For whichever wattage you decide on.

You can opt for the Antec TP-650 @ $80 if you want a much cheaper PSU with minimal performance differences.... Otherwise you can go for the Seasonic X-650/660.

+1 for the TPN 650 or 750, you really don't need any more than that.

I've just noticed the TP-750 had a price drop to $90 from $120 (plus free shipping)... makes them a worthwhile candidate for the 750w range aswell.

Sorry to revive a dead topic but I found what I think is a great deal, a Corsair AX850W for only $150 (versus $180 x760 and $185 x750). From what I understand corsair AX psu's are the same as SeaSonic X psu's. If that's the case, should I buy the corsair AX850W? I'd like to save a little bit of money as well so if the ax850 isn't much worse than an x760 I wudnt mind saving $30 on my build
Note that I know I don't need 850W for my build or my future upgrades but it's always nice to have a few extra watts

Your seasonic is a very high quality PSU. That will do just fine in my opinion.

Also about the post above, if you have the $$$, why not?, after all you if you are getting a quality product, like HX850, no one can 'not' recommend you one.

There is a huge reason the Cooler Master one is cheaper. they are great at making things like cases but they are just shaping up in terms of Power Supplies. I would recommend the Corsair or if you can get the AX850 which is fully modular.

There's a reason he is looking for big wattage, he wants a future proof PSU as well.

note that I didn't buy a psu yet and yes Im looking to future proof and not have to worry about buying a psu for a while (7 year warranty!)
Say hypothetically I was to upgrade to a second 6950, an ssd, a few extra HDDs, all overclocked withn liquid cooling....
Would my 850w be okay?

Before u ask I don't plan on liquid cooling at all but it mat become an option 3-4 years down the line
Thanks
