Hi!
My specs:
2 x GTX280 640MHz
XFX 790i Ultra SLI
1 HDD
Intel Q9650
2x2 DDR3 1GB
1 Asus XONAR audio Card
2 DVD devices
and ENERMAX GALAXY DXX 1000W

I want to buy another GTX280 but Idon't know if I should buy another PSU. I know that my PSU is a very good one, but I'm not sure. Can you tell me if I need another one?

Thanks :)

with the money you would spend on another gtx280 and a high end power supply you could futureproof even more by upgrading to a core i7 system.

Umm, why?

Not that tri-SLi is the best investment, but upgrading from a 9650 to i7 isnt much smarter in my book.

Im using 1900x1200, at nvidia slizone web they say that for trisli I need minimum 1000W or 1200W (it deppends on the model of the PSU)

I think mine is fine.

Im upgrading because now GTX280 are cheapper :p  and they will disappear (as every product of nvidia that has more than 3 months :p  lol)

What do you think about my PSU :S?

THANKS :) !
