i7 2600k
P8P67 Pro B3 MOBO
GTX 460 2GB
8GB G.Skill Ripjaw X Series RAM
Corsair 650TX PSU
1TB Seagate HDD
Antec Illusion 300 Case


That's my current build but now I'm looking to drop the single 460 and pick up a single http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . Can my PSU handle it? I don't know much about comps but I don't want to overload my power supply with stuff and make stuff break. I won't be OC'ing ANY of my parts.


just looking to be able to max BF3 at max res 4x aa.
i heard the rig they use to show gameplay uses a 2600k with a single 580

thanks

No need, the GTX 580 doesnt pull anywhere near enough to require a 750W unit, it can run just fine on a good 550W unit, a good 650W unit can run 2 GTX 460s, it is most certainly capable of a single GTX 580.
