How many watts on a PSU to feed 2 Asus GTX680 DC2 4G?

Well guys I am building my computer and wow what a learning process. So far I --have bought
-1 Asus GTX680 DC2 4G.
- intel i7-3930k
- Asus RAMPAGE IV EXTREME

- COOLER MASTER HAF 932 Advanced (still deciding if this one is a good choice)
- Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower (still deciding if this one is a good one)

Keep in mind that by the end of the year I might add a second graphic card.

SO, what PSU you guys recomend?

  1. Best answer
    GeForce GTX 680 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 550 Watt power supply unit.
    GeForce GTX 680 SLI - On your average system the cards require you to have a 750 Watt power supply unit as minimum.

    If you are going to overclock GPU or processor, then i do recommend you purchase something with some more stamina.

    There are many good PSUs out there, however i'd recommend either of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151102#top

  2. Thanks for the great info now when u said that i needed a PSU with more power/stamina. 850 will be a safe bet running 2 asus GTX680's DCU2 4G and over clocking them?

    Also I will be over clocking the CPU (i7-3930) What I like about the one you mention is that it comes with a nice rebate =) but if I am in a better and safe position with something more than 850 watts well I will have to spend a little.
  3. You will be fine with either of those no worries!
