SLI Power Usage???

Hello all...

I just ordered a new rig to upgrade my existing PC. New specs are as follows:

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?

    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.
  2. Yes it should be more than enough assuming that it can output around 8-900W
  3. this is kinda a silly question. you would only need a 650watt power supply to feed that MAX.

    so yes you are good to go.
  4. You kidding me, broski? You are set with 750W.

    Personal opinion....go Corsair. :)
  5. 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.
