First of all.. this is my current configuration: Asus Striker Extreme Mainboard Intel C2D E6600 CPU (with the newest Zalman 9700 CPU Cooler) 2x 1GB Gskill PC6400 XFX Geforce 8800GTX 1x WD raptor 74GB (10000 RPM) Sata 2x Samsung 160GB Sata 1x Samsung 500GB Sata PSU: 600Watt (BeQuiet) I wanna change my configuration this summer... I wanna put this extra hardware in my pc: 1x XFX Geforce 8800GTX (so in SLI-mode) 2x 1GB Gskill PC6400 (so 4Gb in total) My question is... will I have enough power when using my 600Watt PSU? If not, what is recommended for this configuration? I hope someone can help me. Thanx. Greetz, Wishjuh More about : power Wishjuh January 31, 2007 9:33:51 AM Thanx for the links. But what about the GTX 8800 in SLI mode? I now have 1x 8800GTX... and it uses 2 PCI-E power connectors... my current PSU only has these two connectors... will the 700watt psu's have 4 of these connectors? Or do I have to power only one 8800GTX? Wishjuh January 31, 2007 10:43:16 AM Ok thanx for the advice. I'll look into it.
