  1. Go to this link and find out what wattage you will need to clear before you choose one.

    I recommend a modular design power supply made by Rosewill or Corsair.

    1 GTX 660 TI would preform better than two GTX 560 TI's in SLI.
    I would recommend ASUS as well since they have a copper heat though out the whole GPu. I don't know, just a suggestion. I tried :D Have a nice day.
  2. For a system using two GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics cards in 2-way SLI mode NVIDIA specifies a minimum of a 700 Watt or greater power supply that has a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 44 Amps or greater and that has at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

    GeForce GTX 560 Ti

    On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.

    GeForce GTX 560 Ti in 2-way SLI

    A second card requires you to add another ~175 Watts. You need a 700+ Watt power supply unit if you use it in a high-end system (800+ to a KiloWatt is recommended if you plan on any overclocking). Source: http://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/geforce_gtx_560_ti_sli_review,14.html

  3. if i were you i would get one of the higher quality psu's on bigcycos list not that rosewill hive is not nice but if there is a part you do not want to go cheap on it is the power supply if you do not get a nice one and let say there is a power outage a cheaper power supply will give out on you and can eve ruin other parts in your pc and you should give yourself a little more head room for upgrades in the future.
