460W PSU and GTX 260 Dual SLI Tags: Power Supplies Gtx Computer SLI Components Last response: September 26, 2010 1:52 PM in Components Share tie23he September 26, 2010 7:01:16 AM A friend of mine recently got a prebuilt computer from Costco. He told me that he got Dual SLI GTX 260 running on a 460W PSU. First of all, is that even possible? What amount of Wattage would you guys suggest for the 260's? Also, What happens to a computer when the PSU Wattage is not enough and you turn it on? Thanx in advance.

Timop a b ) Power supply September 26, 2010 1:49:45 PM I think the 260s just scale back when it senses its not get enough power, which translates into in-game freezing. Though It could also be possible the "260"s are actually heavily underclocked OEM versions, which shouldn't have a problem on a 460W then.
