Hi I am building a unit with EVGA nForce 790i SLI FTW Motherboard, 8gig G.SKILL DDR3 PC 10666, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300, 2.50GHz, Quad Core processor and Geforce 9500GT SLi.. Will my old eXtreme Power 650W PSU be enough ??
More aboutgeforce 9500 coolmaster 650w enough
Yes.. that would be enough.. You have configured a better system... so, why don't you get a little more better GPU like 9800GTX+ or higher...
Cheers, I will go for a better GPU but $$ are short on at the moment, so I have to go with my old cards for now .
I'm off topic here but I have to ask ...... Why would you want to sli two horribly performing cards like the 9500gt ? If you got them for free then ok but if you actually went out and bought two of them to do sli well I can only say you haven't done your homework. You would be better off with a single 9800gtx or 4850. Sli or crossfire only benefits with mid to high end cards. Don't expect the performance from 2 9500gt in sli to be anything but abysmal. The 9500gt is a rebranded 8600gt which was already an under performer at launch.
Now I'm only running the 9500's until I can afford better cards they are 1GIG cards but I understand what your saying.. So If I get two 9800gtx and Sli them, will the PSU Coolmaster eXtreme Power 650W cover the power needs with my set up ??
It'll be better to get a single 9800GTX+ for the price of two 9500GT. Note: I mention 9800GTX+. Not the 9800GTX version.
CoolerMaster eXtreme Power 650W would be enough for that.
To the op, you might even be better off getting a single 9800gt or something in that range than the sli'd 9500's.
In my personal opinion I will go for 780i or 750i ddr2 700W Q9550 or Q6600 ooooc jojo
