Default Neo 500HE vs 2x 8800GTS

My NeoPower 500 HE vs 2x 8800GTS 512s in SLI

Think it'll happen? Do I absolutely need to upgrade? Will volt modding and overclocking them really make them that much more power consuming?

I think you would be pushing it just because your rails could be alittle beefier.

The Neo 500HE would be faster, hands down. Plus SLI is totally lame.



lol. Jk. When I first read the title though I was like what is a 500HE? haha.

50+ amps is more than enough for a high end SLI machine.

Well I put 'vs' because I know it would be a tough battle to run two of those monsters, especially when they're pepped up on voltmod steroids XD

I really don't want to have to switch my PSU... I think it'd be fine, but I just wanna be sure... and I'm waiting for GTS prices to drop, but it also depends on the 9800GX2 benches that'll be out in a little more than a week by now once the NDA is lifted and we can get some legitimate reviews on the thing.

plus I'm looking for a deal on a 780I board

good to hear from a trustworthy fellow, thanks a bunch man, people from other forums are telling me likewise, so I'm happy to know that my PSU will do

Theyre exactly the same as the corsair 520hx, minus 1a on each rail. I think itll run them fine, even oc'd.
