Undervolt them and you can run it on a 600W if your mobo/cpu aren't power hungry.

If you are planning to mine on them I would go 700W because at 600W it is going to be running at 100% constantly. If you are just gaming a few hours a day you could sneak by at 600W but if you are running them full out you want some headroom.

thinking about it but with the recent crash and difficulty increasing it may be a waste of time and money

Honestly it is just a bubble, I might try to mine a few bucks here and there since I need the card for gaming but im not running out and investing a ton of money in miners.
