Ok so here is my dilema! Buying new pc on wednesday
Intel i5 760
4gb ram
gtx 460 1gb

Now i plan to overclock the gpu and in future SLI with another gtx 460.
Im buying from a website called www.scan.co.uk
My problem is which powersupply to get as I would like to spend as little money as possible yet get a decent power supply budget is £90 MAX!!

Here are some that im looking at

XFX 750W modular
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/750W-XFX-Black-Edition-S...

750W coolermaster GX
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/750W-Coolermaster-GX-SLI...


Now here's the wild card, I trust scan as a company and website and they are selling this..
http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/750W-Powercool-PC750UM-M...
Its Dirt cheap and has the 80 plus certification and ATX standards so would this be ok?

Finally All the PSU's ive listed are 750w but I was wondering if 650w would be enough for SLI?

Thanks in advance
Josh

Oh one last thing, Im getting a Coolermaster Storm Scout case so the PSU cables need to be long enough to reach the mobo as i hear this is a probem with the storm scout cases!

Run your build through this http://www.thermaltake.outervision.com/ to roughly get power needs with and without sli,
personally I'd trust scan as well, I use their storm psu's with no problems but I wouldn't Xfire or sli on them

No, they don't have the GTX 460 in there so select crossfire and HD 5850 (same power consumption as the GTX 460 1GB).

XFX 650W is good for two 460 in SLI.

LE: The 465 in there consumes much more than the GTX 460.

I trust Newegg as a company and website, doesn't mean I would buy a cheap, low quality psu from them and expect it to somehow be better because of where I bought it.
