Alot of psu's arent what they are actually rated , a cheap 650w psu is more like 450w .

A quality 750w psu is good for any non sli system .

I had problems with my 650w , in benchmarks my pc would just switch off .. due to lack of power since i have everything overclocked .

Now i have a 1000w it doesnt happen anymore , i bought 1000w because i will probably end up xfire soon and i have a milion and 1 fans and lights in my case .. every bit helps .
