  1. The psu should be enough,but most here will advice on a 850watt psu especially since overclocking.
    May i ask what kind of monitor you will use. The sli of those two cards is only good for 4k.

    750w is the minimum I'd recommend. Of you are going to try do a good amount of overclocking then you may want to bump it up to 850w.
  3. In theory 650w should be ok without overclocking. By overclocking both GPU's and the CPU you will easily add more than 100w load. 750w will work but my comfort zone would be 850w.

    I'll use 2 1080p monitors for now.

    But after 3-4 months I'll buy a 4k monitor. So after all I'll use 2 displays, 1 1080p & 1 4K.
  5. Seems like you might need the sli,depending on settings and which games you want to play. That's up to you.

    Enough said about the psu.Seems we all feel more comfortable with 850watts although with this cpu you probably could do with a 750watt psu.If choosing a 750watt would i just let the gpu's be and not overclock those.
  6. Thank you all for the advices!! :)
