Skip the Coolermaster. They make good cases, not power supplies. The Antec will handle two 560 Ti cards, but anything higher would require at least 750 watt. Other than that, you seem to have it figured out. m 0 l Tape78 January 31, 2012 11:01:54 AM Thanks tlmck, btw would you go with Antec EarthWatts 650 or Antec Strictly 650 or Antec TP? m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer tlmck January 31, 2012 12:52:42 PM All Antecs are good. I would just double check and get the one with the most amps on the +12v rail since you plan on adding a second card. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
