Default what psu for 2Xgtx260

what power supply should i put in my mid tower with 2X gtx260s, 790i ultra, velocirapter300gb? I was thinking 900-1000w... can i get away with 850?
I am looking for an affordable one, nothing over $200
I was looking at rosewell but wasnt sure if i could power those cards on it

One GTX260 uses about 190w, so you should be fine with 750+.

just make sure the psu u select has the right connectors. 2 6 pin connectors for each card i think. sumthin like the 750tx he rec. up there would be good, but i cant check the connectors my internet has gone overcap, too slow xD. but im pretty suire that it does have 4 6 pins.

the 750TX can easily handle 2 280s.
Nothing to see here.
