Power Supply and 460s, do you think mine is enough?
Jul 21, 2010, 3:35 PM
I am in the process of buying some new parts to upgrade my computer and I want to avoid buying a new power supply.
Here are the parts
2 EVGA 460 GTX Superclocked 1 gb EE
1 EVGA E758 mobo (1366)
1 i7 930 Bloomfield 2.8 stock
3x2gb G.Skill 1600 stock (pc3 12800)
1 EVGA 275 gtx
1 500gig 7200 rpm wd
2 1.5 tb seagate 7200 rpm
My current Power supply is an AeroCool HorsePower 750W (link to specs here
now if the 460s really draw 13 amps under full load i figure i should be ok with my current psu. BUT that may be pushing it a bit much.
Should i go get this 1100 watt psu?
since i know for a fact that this will power it all.

your current one is enough for 2 460s. They are very power efficient

I agree, the power supply has plenty amp value, even if it is over 4 - 12v rails, it should handle that setup with no problemos!
