  1. Looks good, but a 600 watt psu would be fine.
  2. Sorry for the weird links, doing all this on a small netbook.

    Is it enough for the gtx 670 and cpu overclocked?
  4. Yeah it will be fine for one 670, but if you want to SLI not really.
  5. I can see no reason why you should SLI 670's. By the time you have $400 more, you might as well get a newer card. Also, there is no game that a 670 can not play.
  6. Hm ok well the tx750m is only about $10 more than the 650 version, so i think ill keep the 750w psu so ill definitely have enough power should i upgrade down the road.
