SLI(2) msi GTX560 ti power requirements?

Was wondering how much power I'd want to get for 2x gtx 560 ti's (2gb version). the ones im getting are overclocked I think, but I'll link them for the more experienced techs.

Also I'd like to know how much power would be required for the 448 cuda core version with 1.25gb ram:

I think a corsair enthusiast 750w should be enough for either right?

  1. Its enough, though if you aren't playing above 1080P you can get the 1gb twin frozr ii that is $215 at newegg.

    I'm actualy going to most likely be playing at 1280x800 actualy but I have a youtube channel and I'm building a system that is more then enough to run high end games like bf3 maxed out AND have fraps recording.
    Aswell as that, I'm trying to build future proof so if I can easily use 1 card for my needs then I can just save the other for the future and use in SLI
  3. forgot to mention that newegg is out for me because they dont do international shipping..
  4. If you ar only playing at 1280X1024, a single GTX560 will be enought

    If you are playing at 1080p, then 2 of them is quite a treat.

    I got 2 6850 in cf for playing at 1080p and I can run everything with an OC Phenom II.

    True that beside The Witcher 2 there is no real PC games anymore, but still >:/
  5. You don't need 2gb of vram because you are only playing at such a low resolution. I would rather get a twin frozr ii 1gb 6950.

    well likelyhood is that I will be playing at 1080p at some stage anyways, and I'm still trying to account for the Fraps lag which might slow 1 gtx 560 or that 6950 at 1080
  7. 1gb of vram is plenty for 1080P, as said before you will need more than 2gb of vram if you are playing above 1080P. Though I would get this: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1242007&CatId=7004
