GTX 570s have a maximum power draw somewhere around 250W. Usually, they run under 200W in gaming.

Having two in your OC'd system doesn't seem like a good idea.

I'm thinking one should do just fine unless you're going for multi-monitor setup.

Holy Hell... WR2 is correct! Having 2 x OC GPU will eat more power. Therefore, you will need a Silver / Gold 80 Plus PSU @ around 850~900W. Also, from what I am looking, you are also running intel i7 processor with powerful 8GB ripjaw Memory! These are also power hungry components...

1 gtx 570 needs roughly 38 amps to run, your psu has 48 amps. I am not sure about 2 though.

For a system using two GeForce GTX 570 graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 800 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 56 Amps or greater and that has at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

56 Amps is the minimum needed to handle a gaming load.

If you want your system to be able to run FurMark or OCCT GPU:3D or any other similar GPU stress testing tool, a minimum of a 850 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 70 Amps or greater is recommended.

CPU and/or GPU overclocking will increase the minimum +12V amperage requirement even more depending on the magnitude of the overclock.

ye the overclock would be for max performance when i needed it and yes i am runing dual monitor also will want to be abled to run dual 40" tv's for a stretched out picture!!

i know this is extreme but i want max peak with performance with this setup!!

i will be using msi oc genie feature no manual changes!!

the sli two cards was ideal in mind to do this!

ty for replys!! :) 

dont want no mistakes ovcoarse ty!!

so if i got more power is this setup safe?

i do fear it get to hot in the oc but i have my meters!!
