    I ran this through my PSU wattage calculator: http://support.asus.com/powersupply.aspx

    And it says minimum 950W needed for 2 x 470 - so you'll need something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703028
  2. Okay thanks a lot! I didn't know Asus had their own Power Supply Calculator. Do you think I should go a little higher just in case or is this plenty?
  3. You don't need to go higher, you could run that setup on a good 750w. But go for that PCP&P 950w, it's unbelievably sexy and a great deal.

    Yeah I have that same PSU - it's a great deal and it's actually made by Seasonic so you know it's quality.
