which seasonic M12II? that's a whole series. and which cards do you want to SLI?

Seasonic has higher quality components but they still make some rediculous multi 12v rail supplies. if they are the same wattage and both single rail seasonic is "better". Corsairs are also good though, and cheaper.

750w+ is generally recommended for SLI GTX 560Ti's.

700w would work with a good unit like the SeaSonic however its generally recommended you get a little higher.

Never heard of a 700W Seasonic unit.
Obviously you mean a 750W .= which is more the enough power!

Plus the original M12D and more recent M12II series also featured the same power range.
A quality 650W will run 2x560ti's.

LOL! a fountain of information as usual.
But it's a M12 from 2006.

A 700 watt Seasonic ;) 

Probably not the OP's , he did say M12II.

If it were, I'd trust it, not running an sli setup on it anymore but my HX620 from 2006 still works like a champ
Moderator mousemonkey uses his HX620 from 2006 to power his 560 sli system.

The Seasonic is the best choice.

A bit fuzzy but I hope it gets the point across.

Yes they are and I run them at the 900mhz that they were at when I took them out of their boxes.

I have had the CPU @4.3ghz for a while though.
January 25, 2012 10:20:39 PM

@mousemonkey so I could easily run an SLI config and an OC'ed CPU with a quality 700w psu?[:mousemonkey:1]

Oh yes, quite easily. Mine has been getting thrashed since April last year and it's still going strong and as was said earlier, my PSU is not exactly as fresh as a daisy! ;)
