More about : gtx 470 shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card July 21, 2010 2:17:00 PM Considering one takes about 230Watts? I'd be guessing 900W. Then 200W for an OC'd processor, you're looking at 1.1kw of pure 12v power. borisof007 a b U Graphics card July 21, 2010 9:34:19 PM I would recommend no less than a 1200 watt PSU with PLENTY of amperage on those 12v rails, I'd probably suggest a 1500 watt.

Mousemonkey a c 248 U Graphics card July 24, 2010 6:38:11 PM The best would be 3x GTX480's but what does your budget allow for? And it won't make any difference what manufactures cards you use with your motherboard. Rustyy117 a c 125 U Graphics card July 24, 2010 6:47:34 PM More money than sense? 24GB of RAM!!
