Currently I am running a Corsair TX 750W V2 80 plus bronze certified power supply in my system. I am wondering if I could run maybe 2 EVGA GTX 670 FTW in SLI mode. I won't need to overclock them or anything just stock. If any further information is needed, I am running an i5 2500k @ 4.6 Ghz w/ Corsair H80 Liquid Cooling System, Gigabyte UD3H-B3 Z68X motherboard.

Pretty sure the answer was a definitive, Yes!, but just want to make sure! I won't overclock them at all either.

Ok, so looks like I will be fine SLI GTX 670s then, so which cards should I go with to SLI? Are the cards from EVGA the For The Wins a good choice?

Yes!!^^^^ You've even got yourself some OC headroom.

EDIT: Can't go wrong with EVGA FTWs.

What about SLI 2x ASUS GTX 670 DC II Top Edition cards, same thing I should be fine with either the EVGA FTW or ASUS DirectCU II Top?

Yeah, and the theory is that they'd use the same power at the same settings and voltages, even though in practice you'll see some variation. But even the most power hungry 670s out there would be good to go on a TX750.

The problem with ASUS DirectCU II is they are triple slot cards and not all motherboards are able to accommodate them with space to spare to plug internal headers... and or sound card.
BTW, your power supply has a "SLi" certificate and 4x PCI-E power connectors... All that on a single rail. It's super obvious this is likely to be the best case scenario for a SLi config.

So it's really good power supply for SLi configuration then you are saying Kelvin?

Yeah those triple slot ASUS cards, I'll just either get the EVGA FTW or new MSI Power Edition GTX 670 cards in SLI, if I decide on doing that.

I have a TX650M Would it struggle with 2 of the Asus TOP cards?

Not at stock settings, unless you had some other ridiculous components you were running. Assuming an average CPU load you'd have about 100w of overclocking headroom.

Edit: That is if you are willing to take the PSU right to its max.

So with my CPU Overclocked on a Corsair H80 Liquid Cooling Unit to 4.7Ghz, everything else stock, memory, etc. With my Corsair TX750W v2 80 plus bronze power supply, I should be fine to SLi 2x GTX 670 ASUS Top Editions in my setup?

*BTW the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU II Top cards are dual slot card, the 680 is the triple slot card*

Good because I was considering even just doing a PSU Upgrade next so it would give me more headroom for future SLI/CFX kind of setups, but I def won't need if I have SLi 670's and you guys are saying my PSU is more then sufficient even with overclocked CPU and GPUs?
