Will a 450 watt antec psu be able to run a 560ti and i5?
I might oc the cpu later on and will probably grab another 560 ti by the end of the year.
Thx

Yes, it will run at stock settings. If you're not overclocking until the power supply upgrade, you'll probably be OK.

Which Antec 450W? The smart power or original Tru power no. The newer Eco or Tru power trio then yes.

Technically speaking the SP and original TP can do it, but once the PSU gets hot the caps will pop. I wouldn't risk it.

What about 560ti Sli?
How much power would I need then?

you'd want at least 650watts minimal with sli. I'd suggest 750 watts.

but for single card, you should be fine as long as you don't OC.

I suggest you go AMD to be safe as their cards are less power hungry.

upgrade your psu if you are planning to OC and getting SLI

It can run on a quality 620w PSU.

How's it doing ?
I'm a year out of warranty, seen several different configurations , and spent a good bit of time on the bench ( lots of plugging and unplugging modular connectors )
Still quiet, still in spec :) 

Hey newbie1337, 50a on the 12v , but it's a discontinued model
Plenty of others out there though

It hasn't missed a beat mate, actually I think this one is the younger of the two but either way it's still out of warranty.

I powered down last night but for the most part it's been going 24/7 when not gaming.

Not 100% sure. I found a receipt from Play.com a while back for the first one and it was dated May 2005 and I bought the second one several months later but I don't recall exactly when.
