If the person is going to use a GTX590 or HD6990, sure recommend a 650W. But if they're using an HD6950 or GTS450 or HD6850 and state that they aren't going to SLI/Crossfire, then recommending a 650W or more is wasting their money.

And before saying "they may want to SLI/Crossfire later", first check and make sure that they have a dual slot motherboard in the first place. rolleyes.gif


Oh yes Phaedrus2129 you're absolutely right..applaud.gif

It's actually quite annoying to watch people pulling stunts like that..

GTX570s, HD6950s, HD6970s, GTX285s, etc are all fine in Crossfire/SLI.

This is assuming a highly overclocked Nehalems CPU; with a more power efficient CPU you could naturally run more.



Just last night I have reassured a OCN member that a TX650W V2 is enough for a GTX570 SLI and 2500K..

He tried it and loving it now.. (even though he had to use molex to PCIe 6Pin adapters)..


CHEERS..

It can run Crysis..
