so verdict is; TX850 should be able to cut tri-sli or not? it seems to go over to 950w+ once load is over 85% load.....

and thanks!
Yeah, but check out those amperages. The TX850's +3.3V capacity is 30A, its +5V is 30A, and its +12V is 70A. So I think what this calculator is showing us is what the system could pull under the highest loads if folding on both the graphics cards and the CPU all at the same time.

So, I guess it's absolutely fine if you don't fold on both the CPU and the graphics cards at the same time.

Anyway, you're always very welcome!

Still pretty certain 850w will be able to do three GTX 470's.

Aw shucks.

I think the best part is that if there's ever a lack of power, it'll just "gracefully" turn off as Phaedrus2129 so adequately put it. I mean it's not like a generic unit where there's a risk of danger.

But I'm curious now: do you prefer to fold on both the CPU and the graphics cards at the same time? I mean, it might not be possible.

if I can i would
i could try and sweet talk my chemistry teacher into letting me borrow a kill-a-watt if the school has one....and try furmark for 3 cards and then some linx/ibt for just the cpu and roughly add up the figures.....

oh well; i don't even have my 3rd 470 yet only have 2 right now

I have to admit that I want to recommend a Kill A Watt. I got mine in the mail yesterday, and I am really enjoying it. I actually bought it with the intention of just sticking it in my desk drawer right away just in case I might want to use it for whatever reason (I placed the order while saying, "Meh... why not? At least I'll have one"). But instead I decided to test it out before tossing it in that drawer, and it actually turned out to be a fun toy! So, it's still plugged in and I think it's a permanent fixture there now.

Anyway, it looks to me like as long as you avoid folding on both the CPU and the three GTX 470s simultaneously, then you'll always have enough power. But y'know something, it wouldn't surprise me to see it work for simultaneous CPU and GPU folding anyway with three 470s in the system!

You should just buy your own Kill-a-Watt. It's good to have around and it's only about 10 bucks.
