Hey i am planning on building a new mid-ranged gaming pc

16GB Crucial Ballistix Sport RAM

Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler

How many watts PSU should i get? i mean i want to get the lowest possible that will still be a safe amount ..

I'd say 600 if you plan to overclock

Look at the estimated wattage (That's a low rating, you'll need 550 at least for those components, and more for overclocking!)

You can't SLI the 650.

Also you would be better off getting a better card with more VRAM instead of two cruddy cards stuck at 1 gig. What's your budget?

edit: i stand corrected. I didn't realize the BOOST had that feature. 550-600 would be fine.

Just look at the manufacturer's web site .... all info there

http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gt...

Maximum Graphics Card Power (W) = 450 W
Minimum System Power Requirement (W) = 134 W (2nd card)

Total 584 watts

I'd use a Corsair TX650 or XFX Core edition

BTW, nice choice .... two 650 Ti Boosts in SLI beat the 7970 Ghz and 680 for a crapload less money

well, actually it is the 650 Ti BOOST and yes they do support SLI, while the normal 650 and 650 Ti don't.... and i am willing to spend about $140 - $150 on a graphics card for now... i dont know if there is anything better than the 650 Ti BOOST at that price range right now?
