I'd prefer a 750 or bigger myself to be safe. m 0 l Best solution jsc a c 144 ) Power supply January 20, 2011 5:41:01 PM 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.
