650 watts enough for this rig?
Feb 15, 2012, 11:31 AM
My config is:
Two GTX 560s (Not Ti, and not OC'ed) in SLI.
I won't be doing a lot of overclocking.So, will a 650 watt PSU be sufficient to power this rig? how much headroom would I have?Will I be able to overclock the CPU?
I am considering an XFX 650 watt PSU, it's got some pretty good reviews.
Thanks in advance

With that power supply you can overclock all what you want. Its a good PSU.

, but it will handle two GTX 560s right?
Is this enough power to overclock?

The 560s in SLI will draw around 300 watts the xfx 650 can handle it without a problem. Your system is roughly drawing around 450 to 500 watts max. So you stilll have some headroom to play with.
