Power Supply

I am building a new rig with the 980x and a 465GTX video card. I want to know if a 850 PSU will be enough? I am not over clocking the CPU.

    Depends on the 850W PSU, which one are you planning to get? A good 850W unit will be wayy more power than you need, and even a good 550W unit would be able to run it, but there are some crappy 850W units that are only as powerful as a good 650W unit.

  3. Your power supply you have is more then plenty for your new build I would not change it you could even add another 465 and still have plenty to spare.

    I was thinking of adding a second video card later so that is kool. thx!
  5. Get rid of that GTX465.. Its inferior on every aspect when compared to the GTX460..
  6. Your PSU is powerful enough for you config and even dual cards :)

    I also suggest you GTX460 over GTX465 if you haven't bought it yet...
