My system specs are:
Antec Skeleton (full ATX)
SLI'd identicle BFG GTS 250 Overclocked editions
Corsair TX650 PSU (less than 2 years old)
i7 920 DO running stock usually
12 gigs of Patriot DDR3 1333
2 HDD's one is master/slave (non RAID) 7200 RPM
Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
1 CD/DVD burner

My question is:
I have had some BSOD's and after swapping the cards around and changing connections it stopped BSOD'ing and hasnt done it in a week or two.

I am experiencing hangs on boot occasionally, I would say maybe 1 in 7 boots. A reboot or two is neccessary to get system going.

I am concerned the PSU I have is insufficient for my setup. I want to add that it just screams in Crysis and is super stable once booted even when it is pushed.

IS THE CORSAIR TX650 ENOUGH FOR THIS SETUP?

delluser1 THANKS! That was some good material that is totally relivent to the situation. Good job. I want to say the 650 is a sturdy PSU overall, but it is just enough for the sli'd GTS 250 overclocked editions. Still I am seeing intermittent hang on boots. Funny thing the system has never crashed during crysis even after long hours.
