Thermite

Watts?

450w to around 650w should be enough (give or take a fairly efficient 80+ rating), the two pci-express 16x slots should be able to power them since they don't have any soldered 8/6pin power. Why would you spend $230 on each when you could basically spend it on a more power gpu instead? if you don't mind me asking @Thermite

Well each card does have 6 display ports so it's a good idea in theory until you see the price, that would be $460 on the graphics alone. With that kind of money he could get a board with more PCIe slots and get three or four low end GT cards and still come out cheaper.

This is my opinion, it doesn't mean I'm right and is liable to change at any time. I may offend of which I apologize in advance.
