Is my CPU/Mobo combo good enough for 560 ti SLI?

Hey everyone,

Iv'e been on and off today trying to find good threads about this but can't seem to find one that matches MY setup (usually a gigabyte board or Asus). I am coming into a good deal on two 560 ti's (already own one and will be returning to use cash to get the two) but I want to know if my cpu/mobo is good enough for running these bad boys in SLI and Im pretty much going to up my PSU to a 700+ unless my current one is enough?Also was thinking I may get the fx 8120 since phenoms aren't available right now at my local Fry's (I would order on newegg but I hate waiting haha) Just barely got back into building so any advice helps me out a lot, thanks in advance!

Hello,

NZXT Phantom 410 case
MSI 970A-G46 Mobo
AMD FX 4100 OCd to 4.0Ghz
8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600mhz

What resolution are you playing at? What PSU do you have? 560TI's should be able to max out 1080P most games.

Your computer should be able to handle SLI even with your CPU. But it dependso on your PSU.

You mobo cpu is fine but your psu won't hold two gtx 560ti, get an antect tp 750 or a corsair tx 750.

I'd get this, corasir tx 850 for only $115 after rebate.

there might be some minor bottlenecks but nothing major. You won't notice anything in other words. Your fx4100 at 4ghz is a good match for the gtx 560 ti in sli. You should be able to run everything maxed out smoothly.
