Default Just went SLI...

Hey,

Well my new, shiny 260GTX Core 216 got here this morning via the UPS guy!. But I am wondering if my Corsair TX750 is enough to power the 2 cards + other parts of the rig?

Thanks

Yes. Even better if they're both 55nm.

I have a very similar rig (see sig) and I can tell you that the PSU is easily more then enough to power it!
