Hello, :wahoo: 

I wannna get a PSU to support my new build, with a gtx 560 ti, which I will SLI with another 560 ti in future.

As I can see from the geForce website, a single card needs minimum 500W power supply with two 6 pin connecters. I was looking at corsair PSUs but they only have 4 pin connectors. :??:  I dont get it, how cud they not have power supplies with 6 pin connectors? :heink:  Although it lists two PCI-E connectors. Is that the 6 pin connector?? :sarcastic: 


Anyway
If not corsair, what brand and wattage should I go for getting a GTX 560 ti SLI? I think it has to have at least 50 amps on the +12V rail. So what do you all suggest??


Thx in Advance!! :D

Oh, that one's plenty good, but the OCZ is modular. At the same price point, modular wins.

Corsair HX750 will do ya just fine... I dunno what the nonsense is about them only having 4 pin power connectors. All their midrange to high end models are designed with SLI / Crossfire in mind.

[insert self-promotion here-->] In fact, you could buy mine for any offer of $100+ over on ebay!

It's like new, it's modular, it's a higher quality PSU than the OCZ models above, and it has the required 6+2 pin PCI-e power connectors to power 560ti SLI.

GS 800 is decent choice. It will run the cards without a problem.

It's less efficient, but it'll do fine.
