Yeah You'll be fine.

I power Two Older 460's (which are 10W less) on a 650W corsair unit.

Absolutely, I was using that exact power supply with a power hungry i7 940 overclock heavily along with both the cards and it never had an issue.

i dont remember who it was but in the case pics thread theres someone who ran 2 470's ( down clocked ) and some i7 first gen 1366 on a tx 430 so yes you can; i might get two 7870's when they come out and run those on my tx 650

Corsair TX750 750W Power Supply Review

If it can handle 2x 2900XT it can handle most modern cards.

60a available on the 12v rail is alot of power and "should" be able to handle 2 overclocked 560Ti or 2 overclocked 6950 with a core i7 cpu with ease, I wouldnt push the overclocks insanely high, by you, or factory, but suffice it to say with "performance mainstream cards" you should be fine

If you had 2 6970 or 2 GTX570 overclocked, well then you might be pushing it some.

If I recall and i7 930 heavily overclocked with dual GTX460 1gb(336 shader) overclocked, were using approximately 540watts from the wall and around 44a from the 12v rail. the 470 jumped this to around 600 watts and 50a, this might be a little much, if you wanted the PSU to last awhile and not be running itself to hard.

But either way, you should be more then fine with anything save the higher end configurations, for them you would want a higher quality 750-850, and for quad gpu use I wouldnt go below a high quality 900-1100watt unit, safety first after all :)

I had my tx750 running an overclocked 1090t and 2x 4870x2.
you should definitely be fine.


only reason I am not using it now as I got a hx1000 at a good deal, and my brother needed a good psu
