get 700-800 Watts a good one like XFX or EVGA and you should be fine for SLI, always better to get strong PSU.

So i previously posted a thread about whether or not my new PC build can support 2-way SLI. But that thread seemed to have turned into an argument so ill re-post it.



If there are any improvements feel free to comment. Nothing that will bring it out of my price range of £900-£1100.

Like others said. Get a better PSU. I went with EVGA Supernova p2.

980Ti will perform more reliably. The performance is about the same compared to 970 SLI, but you don't get the SLI issues.

If you want my attention, quote meh! D: or just stick an @samcool55 in your post :3

That's not what he meant. It means that a more powerful, single card is better than two weaker cards (in most cases). No issues with SLI scaling and such. 

Ahhh :P

SLI in that budget? I wouldn't do it. I'd probably go for a higher power, single, more expensive card for similar performance and less heat output.
