Actually, the 650TX would not handle more than one of the new GTX280 if it has the rumored 6 pin + 8 pin power requirements. It only has 2 x 6+2 pin PCI-E power connectors, so any card that takes more than one 8 pin or 6 pin power would not be able to SLI with this power supply. But obviously, the 750tx could Go 750tx FTW!

a 750TX would go nicely with any updating you do to your pc

i have a 750TX sat here and its 200W+ overkill for my rig (in sig) but i'm considering putting 4 more HDD's in and a BLU-RAY RW and i know it will handle that so it will handle 2 280's

Well will the 750TX have two 6+8 pin connector and handle it in terms of watts?

I checked and each GTX280 will require 1 6 pin and 1 8 pin connecotrs

Check out: www.LLY.get.to: Nvidia GTX280 & GTX260 Specifications

If you dont belive me...
shows GTX260 aswell as GTX280.

So will the 750TX be good in terms of pin connectors and watts?

Yes the 750TX has all the power pins you need. The 650tx would be the one that would require adapters and such.

While the X pro is good, the 750TX is better in comparison.
