Triple SLI 660ti's with a AMD FX 6350??? You may find a bit of a bottleneck right there.... Wow, but to answer the question minimum of 850w but I would push it to 900 to maybe even 1000w to be on the safe side. Good luck!

Newegg has a simple rough wattage calculator. For the info you did not mention, I added in a DVD-RW drive and a 7200rpm HDD.

Power supply requirement came out to: 824W

You should get a power supply that supplies around 20% more power than that to be safe - so a 1000W PSU would be necessary.

Are you sure you want to pair 3 660ti's with the fx 6350? I wouldn't get anything under the fx 8350 (or core i5-3570k) because I'm pretty sure you're going to have a heavy bottleneck while gaming.

If you are going AMD I would be going for no less than the FX 8350.

I would also go for a minimum of a 1000w good brand PSU. OCZ/Corsair/Seasonic etc
