I'd prefer a 750 or bigger myself to be safe. Best solution jsc a c 144 ) Power supply January 20, 2011 5:41:01 PM Share Yes. You will not have a lot of capacity in reserve though. Figure 25 amps for the video cards and 10 amps for the OC'd CPU. That's about 420 watts. 80 - 90 watts for the motherboard and memory. 50 - 60 watts for the hard drives. Fans - about 20 watts.

In terms of power usage by the video cards, you'd only be freeing up 10-15 watts, 1.25 amps. Trialsking January 21, 2011 7:16:24 PM Best answer selected by trialsking. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
