Alright guys,

I've been doing quite a bit of reading and can't seem to find a definitive answer. So first, my question is if my corsair AX850 will be able to run two Asus GTX 560Ti cards.

System spec:

Intel i5-2500k @ 4.6Ghz
Corsair AX850 PSU

And currently just one GTX 560Ti

Pretty sure the other stuff doesn't have much effect on the power consumption...

Secondary question would be that while when I purchased this psu under the notion of its "exceptional" capability w/ SLI technology, I have since been informed that I should only use a psu that has more than one 12v rail available. How much truth is there to this?

This is my first system build so please bear with me if my questions seem obvious.

Thanks in advance

100%! AX850W is a PSU which falls in the top bracket of PSU's! Just check the total amps that is delivered.
