Hey quick question. (I've read done some research and used some Watt calculators and I'm still unsure).
I'm wondering if 850W is enough to run a future SLI setup and also allow me to overclock (a bit). My current system specs are...
ASUS Sabertooth P67
Crusial M4 128gb SSD
2TB WD 7200RPM 64MB
Corsair 8gb Vengence RAM 1600
ASUS PCE-N15 wifi card.
H80 CPU cooler
DVDRW optical drive
and 5 or so Case fans
I'd like to throw in another GTX570 at some point down the line. The Nivida website says a GTX 570 max power is 219W GeForce GTX 570 - Specifications - GeForce
Now people online say I should leave about 300W for the CPU and system itself, while the rest would be used up by the GPU's; is that correct?
I'm just trying to figure out if Id be able to run an SLI setup along with OCing the CPU (maybe the GPU's a bit but I hear that eats up a lot of power). A few opinions should be great, thanks!
