SLI Capable PSU

I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times before, and I apologize that I haven't found it yet.

Here is the setup:

CPU - i5-2500k
MOBO - Asus P8P67 Deluxe (Rev 3.0)

I'm looking to add another 560 Ti (identical). Will my current PSU be able to adequately handle the required power? I've read wide ranging opinions both on here and elsewhere and there doesn't seem to be a general consensus. If anyone could clear it up for me, I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

Hello & Welcome

GTX 560ti in SLI consume around 300W in full load, some of CM PSUs are performing crappy with CF/SLI except the Silent pro series.

Just seen a review of this unit at TweakTown and they stated no issue with it, and your setup won't come near a 600W power consumption so you're good to go with it.

Thanks for the responses and the links everyone, very informative. I was leaning towards it being acceptable, but I just wanted some input for my specific application.

geofelt, thanks for the article. I was wondering about a comparison between a higher-end card and a SLI setup, but the cost of that higher-end card is what's keeping me from the plunge.
