Hey alll, I have a question. I was wondering if a 750W powersupply would be adequate enough to power my new system I'm building.

The specs are:
RAM: 4x G.SKILL 2GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost)
CPU Cooler: Thermaltake Frio OCK
MOBO: ASUS SABERTOOTH P67
Case: Antec Nine Hundred Two V3
Video Card: 2x Galaxy GeForce GTX 465 1GB
HDD: 500gb 7200rpm
CD drive: CD/DVD combo drive

It should be fine, especially if it's a good brand, such as antec or corsair.

Like Oldie said, a good brand like Antec, Coolermaster or Corsair will be great.

Other PSUs from less reputable brands (like Eagletek etc.) may explode or be overrated units.

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

GeForce GTX 465
On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.

GeForce GTX 400 in SLI
A second card requires you to add another ~150 Watts. You need a 650 Watt power supply unit.

So based on their review, 750w should be plenty :)

i cant understand why you chose gtx465's. They are notoriously power hungry, hot and slower than gtx460's.
