not enough power. you need about 250W for each of the gpu's and for the components to drive them i would say another 400W. 900-1000W is what you need to look for.

Damn.

This'll do, right?

Also, you think this'll be fine with OC'ing?

I'm thinking of "future-proofing" the PSU, so I'll probably get myself another 780 ti when I feel like I need it.

I was just wondering which PSU and how much watt it would take to run two 780 Tis

Think this one is alright?

Hi - The RM850 failed Hardocp's lab review. Corsair has since modified the unit, but I wouldn't use an RM series
PSU until they have some good reviews.

The problem with this is that I get a discount at the site I'm buying from, but they only got a choice between this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and the Corsair 1000w

The RM series is too much of a risk, stay away.

BTW, a good quality 850 is plenty for 2 - 780's in SLI. A good quality unit will have the +12v amps required,
which is more important than tot watts.
