Would I be able to run SLI 570 with my 850w + mobo

My mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128502
Power supply: Raidmax 850w http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817152043

Think I'm worried about is my mobo/power supply being able to handle the SLI.


I have 2 monitors but I only play games on 1 monitor. Both 23" asus.


Last thing: I for the life of me can't figure out which evga 570 I have between these two.

  1. Both parts will handle the SLI just fine. And the two cards you listed seem to be exactly the same, I wouldn't fret about which one you have.
  2. Only difference I've seen is one is 012-P3-1573-KR and the other 012-P3-1573-AR. Specs look the same to me.
  3. Agree that the motherboard and PSU are fine for GTX 570 SLI, even if I wouldn't have recommended that Raidmax PSU.

    The only difference between those two cards that I can see is the length of the warranty;
    the 012-P3-1573-AR has a "Limited Lifetime warranty with registration within 30 days of purchase"
    and the 012-P3-1573-KR has a "3 year limited warranty. Registration is recommended".

  4. Ya the PSU is what I'm mainly worried about. No idea what I was thinking when I built it. Cheap I guess.

    Should I just go with a 670 instead?
  5. A single powerful card is always preferable, but a 670 won't outperform two 570's. Since you only game on one monitor, a 670 will be enough to run just about any game on any settings for a single monitor, so that's what I recommend.

    Raidmax is generally considered to be a more budget brand, but they're reliable enough.
  6. alright 670 it is then.I think thats the safer route. Thanks
