Default stf60 and sli gtx260 question.

ok so my rig is in my sig. il have 2gb crucial. and i was wondering if my stf60 could handle gtx260's in sli. id run 1 hdd, 1 optical drive. and standard case fans i do oc up to 3.6 though. i would liek to avoid having to buy a new psu since love the one i have the one i'm looking at would be the stf85. i think this 600w psu should suffice i do have 4 pci-e pins on it.

Power draw for a single GTX 260 is 182, so times two thats 364 plus the cpu and the rest of the system...which should land you close to 500watts.

if your that worried about the PSU not being able to cope just go completely bonkers and get a 1000W supply, even though that is overkill.

if i do gt et a new one its going to be the stf85 for 200$ but thats very pricey. i would get it eventualy but for now would like to stay with the 600w. the stf85 is 850w btw.

850 should definitely be enough.
