Is my 750W power supply good enough to run a GTX 560 and a GTX 480?

My specs are as follows

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition
8 GB DDR3 RAM

60 GB SATA III SSD
500 GB HDD
MSI 870 A Fuzion AMD 870 Motherboard

Yes. A good 750w PSU, like the Corsair TX750V2, would be quite sufficient.

It depends on the 750W you have. I have an A-Power 680W lying around that is not going to be able to put out more than 350W because of how poorly made it is. Some power supplies are better than others.

Its a fantastic paperweight tho.

Anyway which one do you have?

I didn't knw you could run these two together at the same time "good enough to run a GTX 560 and a GTX 480? "

google "GTX 560 TDP" and you'll find that the 560 draws 150W. Ditto for the 480 = 250W. Assume the rest of PC runs around 150W. Your max draw is around 400W so a 500W PSU would give plenty of headroom. The card together(!) put you in the 650 and above range.

Agree with comments on good va. bad PSU. http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/Coolmax-CUL-750B... "Coolmax CUL-750B 750 W burned while we tried to pull 500 W from it at high temperatures. It burned exactly on the same point our first sample burned. The components that burned were one of the switching transistors and one of the +12 V rectifiers. Therefore, this unit shouldn’t be labeled as a 750 W unit, but as 475 W instead. Note that this unit has no protections to prevent it from burning. On next page we will show you the video from this power supply burning when delivering 500 W."
