Hello Toms Hardware community,
Recently, my power supply has died. I owned a OCZ stealthxstream 700W power supply and it crapped out on me after 1 year. I'm thinking of getting a corsair one but am not sure if I need 700W still. My specs are as following:

Case: Antec300
CPU: i5 750 (no oc)
GPU: gtx460 768mb
Ram: Gskill 4gbx2 and 2gbx2
MOBo: gigabyte P55m-ud4
HD:f3 samsung 500gb

Currently, I am trying to see which how many watt power supply I would need to fire this up. Also, I want to have a future SLI option with the gtx460 768mb when games I play need that extra boost. Thank you and I appreciate the comments!!!

For a single GeForce GTX 460 graphics card system NVIDIA recommends a system power supply with a minimum of 450 Watts or greater with a minimum +12V current rating of 24 Amps or greater and at least two 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

The minimum +12V current rating of 24 Amps or greater specification is more important than the power supply's wattage specification.
