Hi all,

Right now, i have a Gtx280, and a Q9550.
I was wondering if my psu would handle another graphics card at my gtx280
I was thinking about the gtx260, so that i have a gtx280+ a gtx260.
But i dont know if i have enough power supply for that. My specs are:

-XFX Gtx280
-4 gig ddr2 ocz platinum
-650 watt Corshair PSU
-Evga 750i Sli FTW
-640 gb hard disk

To answer your question, yes.

The only reason to add a second card that is NOT identical to the first is for physics but for a high-end card that is a waste.

Add a second GTX280 in SLI or else get a low-end one just for physics (there's a chart).

I don't think we're very far from some new NVidia releases so you may wish to wait a couple months. You may want a new card or if not at least the prices should drop on the GTX280.

Probably but... seriously WHY?
