i have been wondering that for a while thank you!! +rep going to my sig!!!

That's enough power for your setup. XFX makes great PSUs.

I'm sorry that I was so patient with you. You just contradicted yourself.

yeah.... i now have a HUGE problem with xfx.... WHY would they do this??? that reminds me.... asus did that with my laptop when i had to rma the first time... the second time i had to rma it was this year when the first rma died.... they replaced the mobo, the ram, the power unit, the battery, the power plug, and the whole bottom shell, it was out of warranty.... but they did it.... i am guessing that if you have to send it in a second time.... you will have similar results

Ignore calculators and various idiots on here. 650w is more than enough for SLI GTX 460's.

disagree. Although the 460's use less power due to their GF104's, his past experience with smoking leads me to believe his current PSU just won't handle it. A quality 750 would handle it with ease, but even if he did use his 650w I would be worried in his position and possibly scared to run furmark and LinX at the same time. The thubans also use a relatively high amount of power, even if he had a quad core or a dual it still wouldn't have much room for more hardware later on.
