I know this is not exact and everything but it does show that while the AX850 is capable of doing it, it does get close to the limit of it. Because of that I would not move down to the AX750 as that would be right at the limit and possibly over. I'd say better to leave a little bit of room.
wow, that's actually news to me. my friend and i are both running ax750's in our rigs except im only on 1 580 while he's sli but it hasn't given him any power issues. although he's not ocing anything to warrant extra power draw. i will let him know, thanks ipaine :)
