My System Specs

Default EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 65nm SLi

I cannot find what the PSU requirements for two cards running in SLi, only one card on most sites.

The second one will arrive shortly, how much juice do I need to go SLi?

My Q6600 is running @ 3.4GHz 1.375v and everything else is stock, of course RAM is @ 2.1v (2x 2GB Reaper 1066).

The video cards are EVGA Superclocked editions and I don't plan on OCing them even more ....for now...lol.

Here's my PSU...

Tagan - BZ700

Can anyone find info and link it?

Thanks.

You got plenty of room there...700W, 80a on the 12v rail. My machine (see main rig in my sig) pulls 500W out of the wall, according to my UPS, and I have two GTX 285s going, two HDDs, two DVD, 5-6 fans, tuner, and an OC on my quad.

Well I thought so but wasn't sure.

It says 500W > 36A for one card on EVGA's site, why there is no SLi specifications I'm not sure.

I cannot for the life of me find one review using 2x GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked in SLI.

Anyone see a review for any 2 GTS 260's period?
