Silverstone OP1000-E question for OW....
Though if anybody else wants to join in I'm happy for that too.
I got this PSU ( review found here ) a while back. And so far I've been very happy with how it's performed. However, rereading the review, I see that Oklahoma Wolf says that he's not sure if he would power three GTX 280 cards off of it. I'm currently running 2 GTX 295 cards with it. The total draw is about 500 to 550 watts. Given that a third GTX 295 card is likely to push the power draw up to about 700 watts, would it be okay to still use this power supply?
If necessary I can switch over to an 850 watt PSU, with a supplemental 650 watt power supply to handle to a video cards.
I'm okay with either option, I'm just looking for the best way to go. Thanks.
