I have my list ready to go to build my new pc .........except the power supply......I want to see if anyone already has two evga gtx 680s in SLI in their build. Will a corsair HX750 750watt power supply work for SLI?

my main parts are

CPU - Intel I5-3570k
GPU - Evga GTX 680 sc SLI
Motherboard - MSI Z77A-GD65
CPU Cooler - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212
Memory - Patriot Intel Extreme Master 8GB DDR3 1866
PSU - Corsair HX750

Yes it'll be perfectly fine. As long as it has enough connections though. A HX750 is rather expensive for its price, considering an AX850 which is fully modular is only like $160. An X-850 from Seasonic, top of the line stuff, is also only $149.99 after rebates.

A 750W power supply would definitely work, however it is always best to run under 80% PSU capacity to maximize PSU longevity. If you already have the 750W PSU, use it, but if you are purchasing a new one, I would go with 850W.

By my count he'd be under 70% of capacity. He'll be find with that unit.
