You won't have enough connectors to power 2 GTX 560 ti's, they both require 2x 6-pin connectors, and that PSU only has 1x 6-pin and 1x 6+2-pin.

It would be close but it will not be enough especially with the overclock on the cpu.

Your PSU isnt powerfull enough for those cards and also lacks the connectors needed to power them.

Hi,
I have extra six pin connectors that i have spare if that helps. If 600w is not enough what would be sufficient??
Many thanks
