(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-09-16 12:27 EDT-0400) Share Jeffdom55 September 16, 2012 5:38:16 PM Looks good. But it seems a bit questionable that 500w is decent enough for a SLI and a decent OC. Each card will take about 150w each and the ivy I'm not entirely sure. What are your thoughts? Also if you could recommend speakers/headset that would be nice. m 0 l Related resources Gaming PC build budget $850-900 - Forum Best Desktop gaming PC build for $850 to $1000 - Forum $850-900 Gaming build needed ! :) - Forum Would an 850w power supply be good enough for this build? - Forum 700-850 USD gaming pc build! - Forum Can't find your answer ?
