Currently my sig rig is running an OCZ 750w PSU..

Just wondering if it could handle a new 260 Core 216? I believe I've read on the interweb's others running this card on 700W and lower so thought I would ask the pro's here since I'm getting back into more hardware these days.

Thanks!

You will be fine. I ran a heavily OC'd E6420 at 3.6ghz and SLI'd 7900GTOs on that very same PSU.

Got this from the GTX 260 Core 216 SC review at Guru3D

I am running my GTX260-216 with a 125W Phenom off a 600W PSU. Your 750W should handle it no problem.

I don't have any problems with my system specs. You are good to go.
