Also you don't need 850w psu, a quality 650w unit would be enough for SLI 660ti's. If your doing massive overclocking of the cpu and gpu's I would recommend a 700w unit. jason_01 September 7, 2012 7:49:58 PM Approximate Purchase Date: This Week Budget Range: $1000-$1500 System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming Are you buying a monitor: No Parts to Upgrade: Everything!
