I do not think that the 850 watt Corsair has enough reserve power to handle this. Of the three PSU's listed, the Antec is the best choice. rofl_my_waffle a b K Overclocking May 4, 2010 3:02:04 PM I dont understand what was said above, please explain. If the GTX 480s pull up to 50A, how can the Corsair 850XT with a 12v rail at 70A be beaten by the antec which uses 4 separate 12v rails at 25A each. If anything I suggest the Corsair since you don't have to balance the rails. 850W should be enough with a little extra room if you don't overclock the cards. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
