So,is that powersuply good enough for a GTX660Ti SLi and i7-3770K build?I was asking this earlier from one other forum and they didn´t like it,altough they did not have any proof of its bad quality.I paid 90 $ from it and it is only 3 months old so,i would not like to replace it.So my question is,would it handle My SLi setup with mild overclocking?

that's lovely but that is not how you judge a power supply, you judge it by independent reviews by professional sites with the right equipment to review it.

the issue is, two GTX660ti jan push 300w at peak. the rest of your system will add another 150w or so at peak

so while your PSU (its really a re-branded FSP 600w) can handle that kind of power output, pushing it to 75% peak constantly will increase heat output and can lessen its lifespan. So its not an ideal set up but it will work.

It should work for 1.5 years or less,and it is only 3 months old.You think it would last that?

And could you give me a link to the FSP review,since there is not any reviews from the zalman...
