  1. That power supply will probably limit your overclocking. Other than that, it's good enough.

    And no, that power supply won't be good for SLI. Not by a long shot.

    That system is pretty darned good, except for the two bottom lines. You need a higher-wattage quality power supply from a good company, and right now that graphics card is your biggest bottleneck. Even with another in SLI it would still be the bottleneck.

    I would strongly suggest returning the power supply and graphics card for refund and getting better ones, even if it means waiting a couple of extra weeks for the next paycheck or to beg/borrow/steal** some more money for the budget.

    ** No, I do not condone theft.

    Edit: And you should be RMAing the mainboard soon too, unless you got a new fixed ASRock that I haven't seen any of yet. I'm still waiting impatiently to see a new version of mine.
  2. well i dont intend to SLI for a few months i assume that 450w would b ok..well jst to overclock thought which PSU would b good enough...and recommend sum good brands for psu
  3. Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX (if you can put up with the wierd styling).
