I was thinking of getting another gtx 670 to go into sli and I was wondering if I can pull that off with a 700w power supply. CPU 4.6ghz, Graphics gtx 670 (sli?(oc +88 core + 200 memory)), 1 ssd, 1 hdd 7.2k rpm, corsair h100.

What is the model of the PSU? Brand? If the brand isn't reliable then you might be on the edge of the PSU failing already if the PSU isn't reliable.

A normal 670 consumes around 300w, a second one might be pushing to the limit of the PSU itself and I wouldn't recommend trying it unless the PSU is made by; Seasonic, Corsair, XFX, or Antec.

lol no. Not 300W

The GeForce GTX 670 has a maximum TDP of 170 Watts, although the typical board power is around 141 Watts. If you overclock this board and max out the power target slider at +122% the highest TDP will be just 173 Watts

Basically as long as the PSU can support 700W, and isn't shitty. It will work.

Keep in mind that they tested system wattage on a rig that uses much more power than OP.
That is TOTAL SYSTEM wattage, not wattage per card!

I have a Corsair GS700 and I set the power slider (in Precision X) to 117%. I also have 3 extra case fans and, an LED strip if that even matters. The video card is an EVGA SC+ 4gb.

No, SLI is not supported in CUDA rendering.
