Default Re: Is my PSU enough power for SLIing 8800's?

Well I've got a 320mb GTS right now guys. So thats why I want to get another 320mb card.

My thoughts are I could buy a 8800GT but I'm only going to get a slight gain over my current 8800Gts. But if I buy another GTS the performance level for the price is going to be a lot better than what upgrading to a single 8800 GT or G92 GTS would be.

Thanks for the info maybe i'll email Raidmax to be sure. Also I know the 680I has a input for on the motherboard for extra power for SLI. I guess I'll hook something into that as well.

the lowest power psu they suggest is 600watt
and since its go 2 12v rails id say your good
thats odd they havnt recommended my psu for dual 8800gtx's but they have recommended it for dual 8800gts's. yet they have psu's as low as 750w in the dual 8800gtx's
