I am going to Sli two Nvidia GeForce GTX 460 1GB SE video cards on a new rig I'm making. The rig itself is a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R mobo with an i7 950 processor, 3 x 2GB DDR3 1333MHZ RAM, and a 128gb SSD.

I want to know if the following PSU is enough: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

If not, then what will I need for this?

Awesome choice. Its would serve you well.

Its not every day we see PC Power and Cooling being linked on this forum. :)

A bit pricey.... yes. But a great PSU for long term solution.

So you think the original 750W I chose is enough? I put my parts into an online watt calculator thingy and it said my machine would need about 850W

GTX460 1GB would hardly cross 500W. So 750W leaves you plenty of room to overclock and add more stuff.

I did all the calculater bit with msi and asus and it came back with over 600w for my setup.

I've been running 2xGTX460's Folding 24/7 for the past week on a 550w OCZ Fatal1ty so you are well covered with 750w.

The Seasonic 650w for $119 deal seems to have disappeared, pity.
