Just a StarLogic 400w, I totally forgot about having to upgrade that. Would a 600w handle the extra cpu and an 8 series card?

Watts mean nothing.. go look at the Amperage on the Dual 12V Rails.. in this case the Corsair 520hx have enough to power and keep a Quad core at 3.8ghz 4 or 5 HD's and SLi or Crossfire cards...

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:
