Just finally completing my build and thinking of putting another Gigabyte card in to make 2 instead of 1.

Will the Cooler Master V Series 700W 80Plus Gold Power Supply be good enough to run two?

I wont be overclocking at this stage, and if I do an upgrade power supply then if needed.

thanks in advance.

Like I said i wont be overclocking them or anything..

Just want to know if it will be suitable to run both, will only be playing games and some video editing but not too hardcore?

right, that makes sense then. Not too sure if the v700 will cut it for video editing. Im pretty sure Premier can load your cards @ 100% right?

Stock SLI GTX 780ti with a factory overclock will be fine on the V700. A factor would be which cpu and what kind of overclock on it. But even a lightly overclocked 6core SB-E will ok with this system and psu.

If you do decide to do it with your 700w psu be sure to let us know if it was able to handle the load.

I have a 700w psu with a single GTX780 and I'm planning to add another one soon would love to keep it.

You're good adding another GTX 780 TI. Just overclocking is limited somewhat, which you said already you won't be doing.

v700 is a solid psu and it won't let you down on what you want out of it.

I say use the v700 for a bit first and see how it goes. Your system won't blow up or anything, just shutdown if the load is too heavy.

Really, the v700 is a beastly quality unit.
