Hello,

What power supply would be best for a GTX 470 and dedicated physics GTX 260?

Then what affordable CPU could cope with this setup?

Apologies first.
A GTX470, a GTX260 for physics and a 2.3ghz quad ?
You should be more worried about getting a cpu that can push data to either of those cards by themselves than a new psu.
Ever heard the term " bottleneck " ?

Oops! Guess i over estimated the ability of the CPU then. I've had it about a year 1/2 but thought it should still cope. What CPU first then? and then what PSU?

:D

Don't know what you're running, if you could overclock to 3.6 would be good.

I bought the above from www.PCSpecialist.co.uk

If i need a new CPU, i want it to be capable but affordable, as is the same for a new power supply and tower.

Basically i bought the above spec with just the GTX 260. I decided i wanted a new card (GTX 470) with ded. Physx (use the old gtx 260). However for some reason my PSU died so now i am looking to get a new cooling chassis, Liquid CPU cooler, and suitable PSU.

I was hoping that the CPU would still be capable. I am struggling to find a PSU and Chassis Combo that is the right power (cos i don't know how much i need) and a good price.

Cheers.
