most websites are suggesting a 450Watt PSU per card, just to compensate for the other devices. your CPU alone is an addition 95Watts at stock clock, so your already asking for 895Watts from a PSU thats only made to pump out 800. and you still have to add memory, HDD, CDROMs, and other such devices you may have.


I just recently OC'd my processor. Before it was OC'd I would still get the same issue :x Thanks for that idea though! :yesnod:


Will have to test that change. I was able to play FSX last night for about 4 hours non stop and no crash, my setup was none SLI.

I tested it for 10 minutes in SLI and it crashed.

I have a friend of mine who has a Corsair 1000W that we will test on my machine before I decide to purchase mine so that we can see if the problem truly comes from the power issue.

Thanks again for all of your inputs!!!!! ^*^
