Solved SLI Power Usage??? Tags: Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: January 14, 2013 1:17 AM in Graphics & Displays Share sam80jr January 14, 2013 12:27:56 AM Hello all... I just ordered a new rig to upgrade my existing PC. New specs are as follows: GIGABYTE x79-UD3 Mobo Intel Core i7 3820 Socket 2011 (sandybridge-E) CPU 16 gigs G.Skill Ripjaws series Quad-channel kit 2x Evga Geforce GTX 680 FTW (2048mb RAM edition) in SLI Corsair H100i Liquid CPU Cooler and various HDD and 1 SDD for storage. My question is...with all this new powerful hardware, will my existing Antec 1000w PSU be enough to handle it? More about : sli power usage Best solution Xttony a b U Graphics card January 14, 2013 12:30:56 AM Yes your antec can handle the system without a problem. Since Antec is known to produce some quality PSU, I don't think there will be a problem with lower amp ratings.

You are set with 750W. Personal opinion....go Corsair. m 0 l austing a b U Graphics card January 14, 2013 1:12:57 AM If you where using a GTX4xx series SLI maybe not, but being that Nvidia was very consious of the environment, you wont need anymore than 675w to power SLI 6xx series cards. m 0 l sam80jr January 14, 2013 1:17:07 AM Best answer selected by sam80jr. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
