Hey everyone.

My questions:
- I'm wondering how much power two BFG GTX 260 graphics cards use when at full load?
- Will this power supply work with my system if I have two GTX 260 cards running in SLI?

Here's a list of parts in my system other than the two BFG GTX 260 graphics cards:
- AMD FX-4170 Quad-Core @ 4.2GHz
- Cooler Master V6GT CPU Heatsink Cooler
- MSI 970A-G46 ATX AM3+ 970 Motherboard
- 8GB (2x4GB) G.SKILL Ripjaws X DDR3-1600MHz RAM
- Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 3.5in Internal HDD
- Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid-Tower with six 120mm fans
- Keyboard, Mouse, Headphones, 4 External HDDs

That is more than enough. A quality 650W can run it well too.

2 x GTX 260 shouldn't require more than 550W, but 750W is good if you want to upgrade at some point.

systemwise i would fix things up given you can do better but for the psu, just get that. the gtx 260 has a tdp of 202w which i would assume more given you would overclock them. that would make 400w+ 100w from the CPU.

so yeah, get that unit
