Can my psu handle a 2 960's in SLI?

I have an EVGA b2 750 watt psu and i wanted to know if it could handle a 960 2-way sli. These cards will be overclocked if that makes a difference.

Yes it would. I have to ask, why would you want to? You can get better cards for the price, and the 2GB of VRAM is going to be a serious bottleneck for that sort of GPU horsepower.

4GB is wasted on this card. whatever 960 you get just make sure it doesn't cost more than $200 USD.

Why is 4gb a waste?

the card doesn't have the bandwidth to saturate the frame buffer. outside of few situations like moded skyrim this card won't fill the 4GB and will run out of gpu power long before it does. any game that needs more than 2GB will need a stronger gpu to get good performance at whatever visual setting requires that much vram.

The GTX 960 really just isn't a good card for the money. I'd just go for a pair of R9 280Xs or 290s.
