500 w PSU enough for GTX 650 ti Boost SLI

I already have a Corsair CX 500 watt power supply. Will it be able to handle SLI for 2 GTX 650 ti Boosts? I am not going for a single card setup, as it is more convenient at this time.

  1. no the 12v rail on the 500w unit would be fine for one card but not two you need a 750w unit to be safe.

    I'm running Sli'd 660Ti's on a 620w PSU and the 650Ti Boosts would consume about 30w less so a 750w is not needed.

    I recently got a 760 instead. I would probably need a new psu to put a 760 in sli, right?
  4. Yes, the 760's are 170w GPU's so a GOOD 650w or 700w + PSU will be required. I have had 2 170w cards running on a Corsair HX620w PSU but I don't think you can get them anymore.
