I made an impulse buy on an MSI open box 260gtx from the egg a few minutes ago.
I also plan on using an i5 and oc'ing to around 3.8ghz-4.0ghz. Since there's no ht it might save some power. Also I'll be using a single Intel ssd which might save some power.
I have this HIGH QUALITY earth watts psu.
It seems to have enough amps on the 12v rails. I know this power this "power issue" has been blown out of proportion in the past before.
If someone could give me a good answer I would be grateful + rep.
1.) Would I be good for a second 260 gtx?
2.) This is kind of unrelated but my new mobo is p55. Apparently p55 only supports x8/x8 on the pci-e lanes with SLI. In reality would I notice a performance hit? I know I might with say sli 295gtxs, but in this case I'm thinking I'd be just under the bottleneck.
