I am considering this psu(placed order already and I just need to send checks to them.) on my setup:

Core i5 750
g.skill 4gb 12800 9-9-9-25
Seagate Baracuda 1.5tb 7200rpm
Nzxt Lexa S
OCZ StealthXstream 700w (replacing it because it's so loud.)
PNY gts 250 1gb
Asus p7p55-m mainboard
I-inc 25-inch 1920x1080 monitor.

Soon, I will be upgrading my graphics card.
Can this psu handle Gtx 460 sli or single Gtx 470?

There's should be enough power for either configuration, a single 460 has a system power reccomendation of 24 amps, a 470 comes with a 38 amp reccomendation.
The problem with SLI is the lack of pcie connectors on the psu.
I don't like the fact that the NeoEco uses a pigtail pcie configuration ( single cable set that splits at the first connector )
Personally, I'd spend the extra money for a psu like the Antec TP650, it would provide more reserve power and the 4 pcie connectors needed for SLI.
