Hi I recently got two 480's to replace my 5870 and I absolutely love them. Temps get kinda hot during intense gaming but I just crank the fan up and cant really hear it over my headphones. So just to play around atm I overclocked them to 850 core/2000 memory and they perform even better- looks like I'm getting sli 580 performance. I wont run them oc all the time, just if a game comes along when I need a lil extra power to keep a 60 fps vsync-maybe metro, crysis 2, battlefield 3, etc. I also have my I5 750 @ 3.8 and only power one hard drive. If I keep safe temps is my 950 watt psu enough for everything(I won't go water cuz I can't justify the extra money atm.) Thanks

Yes... the Corsair CMPSU-950TX is powerful enough for an OC'd GTX 480 SLI setup.
