SLI/Power Supply question
Aug 9, 2010, 3:42 PM
Hi. I have a question regarding an SLI configuration and an ample enough power supply for it.
I've been told by two individuals at a computer parts outlet that I should be ok, but wanted further input.
I am looking to get these two eVGA GTX 460s;
I currently have this power supply (Corsair TX 750W);
Do you folks think I would be safe with this configuration?
I currently have one BFG GTX 275 768MB OC, 6GB of RAM, Core i7 920 @2.67GHz, Seagate 500GB HDD, and Windows 7 64bit Home Premium - in an Antec 900 II Gamer case.
Also, is it worth it to upgrade to this? Or would one EVGA 1GB be sufficient? The SLI 460s seem like a good deal, especially with the lifetime warranty from eVGA.
Currently game at 1920x1080. Thoughts and opinions are appreciated,

Hehe, I never did receive any feedback/opinions, but I ordered the two cards anyways.
I found a lot of reviews and it seems that the maximum power draw under load on a full system was around 570W.
