I'm thinking to upgrade my current system with a second 780Ti.
The question is, will the PSU (Corsair CX750M) be enough to run both?

Here is the complete build:

The estimated wattage for two Ti's, according to PCPP, is 712w.

Thanks for any help.

750 is not enough for sli ti. Maybe try 850 or 1000.

cx series is not good rated for its performance and build . . system with 2 780ti will require 700w in total so buy a good gold rated PSU like ax760

Gold rated means nothing for normal users. 750w is enough power, even for an overclocked full load system, but the CX series is not for this kind of situation. I would still go for 850w for longevity, and you definitely want to get a high quality power supply at this budget and level of performance

You can run 780TI SLI on 750W, but the capacitors on the Corsair CX series are very poorly made and won't handle the output loads required by the SLI configuration. This would be a much better use of $2K IMO:

Well OP is asking if he can add another 780Ti to his current build that he linked previously as far as I can tell from the original post! He is not buying a new build.
