My System Specs

Default 660 Ti in SLI

I'm not sure if this is the right category to post this thread on but I have an Asus DirectCU II OC 660 Ti and I want to get another one of them and go SLI. But I don't know if my PSU will be able to handle them. I have the corsair ax650 psu.

Should be able to (depending on other components)

Ideally you would have a 750 watt but as long as your not getting full load on everything in your system (like in a stress test) then you should be just about ok..

650 on the AX is more than enough for 660TI's.
Even if you had a HEX in there you would be fine.

I'm going to do the same thing.
As long as your PSU is rated decently, you should be okay.
i'm going to run something similar soon on a Seasonic X-650, so you should be able to get away with it even under 100% load.

I've seen a 2011 setup, overclocked, with two of these cards only pull 513w... so its possible.
