Thanks guys for the input. I am thinking of switching to a gtx 570 any thoughts on that? I know it is a bit expensive, and thats stretching my budget a little bit. I downgraded my case and took off a few games so I will be able to include it.
Is 850W really necessary? I'm not planning to SLI in the next 2-3 years
It's pretty simple if you do the math. For what that MSI card cost along with free shipping, your getting a psu that will push two of those cards and leave you some headroom without having to replace the psu later on if you decide to SLI two of those cards for the same amount of money that you were going to pay for that Gigabyte card and 750w psu.
