I want to add another 970 to this system. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/86XCkL
Some recommendations on a new psu would be appreciated.
the 750 watt is enough for two way SLI.
The psu isn't big enough for another g1, they used as much power as a R9 290.
Not looking for controversy...just suggestions. I have read different things about power consumption and I am not sure if 750 is enough. So I was thinking about a new psu. Any suggestions would be helpful. So far I really like the Rosewill that I have.
If you want another GTX 970 I wouldn't buy a G1, I would buy a reference version which uses a lot less power.
I am a noob...what do you mean by reference version? I like the idea of saving money but I don't want to lose the benefit of having two 970's.
the reference 970's comes on the same short pcb and cooler as the 670 and 760. that model is on a reference 980 pcb and is only sold in two stores, newegg business and bestbuy. this is a reference 970: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814133564&cm_re=gtx970-_-14-133-564-_-Product
Okay now I am a little confused. I thought it was better to use the same brands if you SLI?
Also, using one of these cards do need to consider adding more fans?
if you like the capstone 750 then keep it. if anything, buy a mutlimeter from your local hardware store and post a topic on here with your 970 G1 SLI setup's power consumption at load. you can do the community a giant favor with that. if the psu isn't enough it will simply and safely shut down.
I might go this route but unlikely that I will be measuring power consumption. I am only thinking about longevity and eventually going to a higher resolution display.
how else are you gonna know how much power your components draw? if you knew the 750 watt would be fine would you bother getting a new psu? probably not, so you should find out.
I don't feel many people who build a computer at home are using multimeters.
people who wanna know how much power their pc takes to run do ;). I'd check with people who have 970 G1 SLI and 750 watt psus.
what would you be looking for in a new psu? how much?
