Default PSU Requirements for X2 GTX 275 SLI

Hi

Ive just bought myself another GTX 275 OC.
Im Currently running
AMD Phenom X4 955BE
1TB Samsung F3 HDD
160 GB Maxtor HDD
x1 DvD Reqrited ( Sony Optiarc I believe )
Arctic Cooler Pro V7
Antec 900 with 5 Fans
Zotac GTX 275 AMP! Running at 702/2520/1512
And my Mobo is the Asus M3N-HT Deluxe/Mempipe
With x2 800Mhz DDR2 Ram (4gb)

The new GTX 275 card is running at 648/2304/1440

Would my current 750 Watt PSU be suitable for this? I am looking at a 950 Watt PSU but wont able to get for another few weeks.

THanks

Your 750w ps should be good enough if it's a good brand name and model. If you just want a new power supply then this one will power your SLI setup with ease.

That'll work just fine... Not the top quality model, but definately not bad.

You could drop down to a 750W and up the quality, but again your choice is solid.

Ok Sweet. Im looking at spending less that 100 on a new psu and hopefully my current psu will work for a few hours just to test the sli setup. Even if it doesnt run at top quality as said it will be just a few hours.

Now hoping the new card comes with the sli bridge as ive lost my old one.. if not more wait time lol.

Thanks

+1 for this PSU. My brother has two BFG GTX 275's in SLi and it runs them fine.

Yea, Just bought the GFX Card and the PSU, Unfortunatly @ iFargle the newegg site doesnt deliver to the UK :P because the price is bloody amazing ( Like 70 ) but that PSU here costs 107 putting it just outta my price range due to the new of a new baby.

Anyways thanks for your help people. Much Appreciated.
