OCZ ZS 750 for GTX570 SLI?
Hi canucks,

Im buying this PSU for an SLi build of the new GTX560 ti (448 core):
Newegg.com - OCZ ZS Series 750W 80PLUS Bronze High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandy Bridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom

Now they say that the gtx560 ti 448 core, which is launching on Nov.29, is just a downclocked gtx 570 so i'm wondering if that PSU can handle gtx 570s in SLi. I know 750watts should cut it, but it only has a +12v 54A rail.

I'll be using this with a single HDD, an i5-2500k, a dvd burner, 4 120mm case fans and 1 200mm case fan, and a coolermaster v8 cpu heatsink.

Im buying this PSU cos after promo codes and rebates, it's coming out at $70 only. As compared to the corsair tx 750 which is like $110.

Any opinion would mean a lot. thanks!

Each 570 uses about 330W on load, so i would say 750W is pushing it way too close.. I would opt for a 850W.

yeah but im not really using it for gtx570 SLi, im using it for the 560ti 448 core SLi. They're based off of the same GF110 chip but the 560 ti will use a little bit less power... i think.

I still would suggest 850W for that.

how about a 560 ti SLI build? (not the 448 core version, but the one based off the GF114 chip)

would that PSU be able to handle that?:ph34r:
