  1. Z77+ and i5 3570k
  2. Is your current Asus GTX 680 one of the fat models?
  3. Your existing MoBo is SLI capable. A 750 watter will be fine if you don't overlcock but with two GPUs and a CPU OC'd I'd want a quality 850 watter ?

    Is your 680 a 2 slot or 3 slottter ? If the latter are the PCiE slots too close to fit another ?

    If ya wanna go new, I'd opt for a MoBo with wide spacing between the PCI-E slots (cooling) and a 3570k. I have always been partial to the Asus WS series for this reason.
  4. I would get a minimum 1,000+ watt PSU. In that cards specs it says "Minimum of a 550 Watt power supply"

    Each I of those cards uses 333 watts at full load that's 666watts just for your graphics
  5. 1- i think i have the fat models asus gtx 680 ( is that problem)
    2- i have 2 slot

    A 750W will be fine, though I don't like the fact that that you are running a thermaltake...

    My bad I was looking at "AnandTech Bench GPU" "Total system power consumption" so yea a 750 should do. :pt1cable:
  8. At the extreme resolution you should be running to justify a dual 680 GPU setup the CPU matters very little. An Athlon x4 would be fine for the most par.
