  1. 750W is enough for GTX 760 SLI but I recommend getting 850W for GTX 770 X 2.
    750W should probably run 770 SLI as well but it would be running on its max all the time which is not a good thing.

    Better to stay on the safe side as price difference between both of them is not much.
    You might also want to consider buying PSU from Seasonic instead.

    They have high quality gold japanese caps and are better overall than corsair.
  2. Yes, it will be enough. It has all required connectors, and 62A on +12V rail.
    But, 770 sli need 62A too. I dont know if you won't get any perfomance issues.
  3. well ill get 850 one i guess but what do u mean by 62a

    He means that 62 Amperes of current flows on +12V Rail and that is required for GTX 770 X 2. So your PSU would run at its max all the time that is why he is not sure if you would encounter power related issues or not.

    There is a single rail in that PSU so you just have to multiply the current with 12 to get the amount of wattage supplied by the PSU.

    62 x 12 = 744W (750W Rounded off.)

    OCZ also makes good PSUs but choose one of these if possible to get beat quality - (Silver) (Gold)

    Both are great and difference is just in efficiency.
