I'm thinking about getting another gtx 680 for sli, my power supply is 700 watts. Is that enough power or do I need to upgrade my PSU? I am also willing to get a 780 as a replacement also, but getting another 680 would be cheaper.

Is it a good quality power supply? If yes, you should be fine, it looks like others are using 750 watt PSUs. If it's a no name or crappy brand then I would not recommend it.

It's a thermaltake, so it's an Ok brand.

I think a thermaltake would be able to hold up to SLI, but you might want to consider upgrading your PSU in the future.

Depends on which Thermatake , most of them aren't very good.

A good 750w would do it.
