would you upgrade?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an ax850 which was enough to power my 2600K and 570 sli. Then yesterday one of my 570s died and i decided to upgrade to 580s.

My 2600K is at 5ghz 24/7 and i'd like to go for a nice OC on the 580s when i get them.

So my question is would you upgrade the psu to like the ax1200 or do you think the ax850 can handle it?

The AX850 is fine for your setup. 1200W is only necessary for four GTX 580's. 1000w for three.
