I dont know he might be able to get in a second one. Depends on his system load. But to be on the safe side I would say higher is better.

In addition to a PSU upgrade, you need to change the mobo as well.

And I'm glad you like your card OP
. It was a touch decision between which card I wanted
. I almost still kinda want a GTX 470 just because having a 8800GTS for the last week and having it fold is pretty nice.

Once I sell my last 5770 I'm getting an Evga GTX 470
Can't wait to fold. My 5770 is only getting me 300 PPD

I love my 470. I don't think I've been this satisfied with a GPU in years, and I used to get a new one every few months or so just to try out the new tech.

It's pretty beastly. The thing I like to do is let the game decide what settings to set it to, play said game, then up the settings to make it prettier.
So far, every game has performed the same/better with the higher settings.

Not quite sure if I'll go down that road. My next plans are to get an i7, and after that I'll probably be broke for quite some time

Yup my 470 is doing wonders I want to add another one but can my HX 750w handle it??

Also IMO the bests cards for your money(in USA) are 5850, 470, and 5870

I am running SLI on my TX750, so your HX750 should handle it fine beings it is slightly better quality than my TX.

All depends on your airflow and ambients. Also if you use custom fan profiles they stay much cooler than default fan speeds. With a custom fan profile, the hottest my cards have reached was ~80C with 80% fan speed, and that is with my 2 cards right next to each other.
