How much power is required for a dual GTX 460 SLi?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I currently have:
ASUS M4N82 Deluxe Motherboard
eVGA Geforce GTX 460 External Exhaust 1GB
Corsair Gaming Series GS700 700 Watt PSU
2GB DDR2 (Upgrading to 6 in future)
AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2 Ghz (Default Clock, No overclocking at all.)

I am wanting to upgrade to a second of the EXACT same GPU,

I want to know if TWO GTX 460's will run on a 700 Watt Gaming PSU.

Please help,

Thanks.

700 watts is enough but I'd opt for maybe 750-850 for overclocking headroom for cpu/gpu or both.

But 700 is plenty for regular use.

That 700w PSU is more than enough to run both of your GTX 460's. You'll be just fine with that PSU.

You should have no problem. Im looking @ my Kill a Watt now while running my i7 970(4.4ghz) and my 2 GTX 460(925 core) folding at 100% and they only use 650 watts. You have room to even oc your procesor.

And that's power draw from the wall, so the PSU is only putting out ~585W.
