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?

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

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 >:/

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
