Hello, this is my first post and i want to ask you something.

I have a i7 920 2.66@ 3.33, in a Asus P6T deluxe V2 with 6Gb of RAM . My PSU is a Corsair TX 850W, an i have a XFX GTX295 stock speeds.

I have plans to buy another 295 to going Quad SLI, but i'm not sure to have if have enough power to do it. This PSU has a combined 12v rack with 70A and 840W maximum.

Please i want your opinion.

Opinion.....2 295's in quad sli is a waste of money. Do you really want to bump your framerate 5% for $500? 2nd opinion......70amp power supply is not enough for 2 295's. It's barely enough for 2 260's.

Ditto on the quad SLI, but the PSU is powerful enough. GTX295 uses about 215W.
