Hey guys,

I have 2 GTX 580s and wanted to get a 3rd but don't know if my current PSU (OCZ ZX 1250) will allow me to. Should I get another one?

I'd be fairly positive that a 1250W PSU can run 3 cards but does it have enough power connectors?

yes it can run them. it has the connectors. 3 580s =750W at stock. still plenty of headroom for anything else + overclocking.

Normally the 3rd card in trifire or trisli doesn't add.much for fps so if that's your goal you.may want to check benchmarks.
