Hi There guys,

I'm quite new on this site so I'm not exactly sure what goes for what
However it might say, I've recently just bought a new PC with these specs:

CM HAF 922 ATX CHASSIS
XFX PRO850W CORE EDITION 80+ B
ASUS P9X79 DELUXE MOTHERBOARD
INTEL CORE I7 3930K 3.20GHZ 12
KINGSTON 16GB 1600 MHZ DDR3
CORSAIR HYDRO H100 CPU COOLER
PATRIOT PYRO 60GB SATA 3, 2.5"
SEAGATE 1TB 7200RPM 64 MB
LITEON 24 X DVD WRITER SATA
EVGA NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 SC Signature

Few days ago I decided to go to 3D and bought a Samsung 27 inc 3D Monitor. The bummer is that I just found out that 3D gaming takes alot more GPU power that 2D gaming so I ordere another EVGA NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 SC Signature for SLI. My question is, will my power supply be big enough for all the hardware or do I have to upgrade that as well? Also, I have a 7.1 headset, gaming mouse and keyboard which I presume also draws its power form the PSU?

Sorry for all the questions, I'm not an expert on PC's so I ask you guys , I just want this to be right.

the xfx 850 pro power supply you have is plenty able to handle two video cards in SLI along with the peripherals that you have. Not to worry.

Many thanx, will continue with just the 850 then. PS, you don't maby know roundabout how much the peripherals will use of the PSU wattage?

it does not include stats for gpu oc and the paid version is more detailed. but it's a good one.



Sweet, thanx a mil. Looks like I'm still in the green zone. Might have to look at an upgrade if I want to OC, add a few Hard drives, fans and a blu ray. But that's future problems. For now, it seems perfect
