Will this PSU be able to run two GTX 460 SLI 256 bit? If not, can you recommend a good power supply for under $80?

i would not trust that PSU to run a single GTX460, much less two. if you act fast you can get the corsair TX 650 v2 for $81 out the door (plus an MIR). otherwise there is the antec earthwatt 650w for under $80 on newegg and not much else for under $80 out the door (unless you include waiting for rebate checks, i don't) that can run the GTX460 in SLI.

Only has 2 6 pin, not enough for SLI.


it can run SLI and you can use adapters (budget limits options). the real issue is the 46a on the 12v is what a quality 550w unit offers. its a solid PSU but the GTX460 in SLI would be pushing it.

I realize that but I rather not go that route...

then you need to increase your budget or live with sacrifices. raise an extra $20, get the corsair 750w and don't worry about anything else
