PSU for Tri-SLI?
 
Hi all,

I'm seriously thinking of buying a 3rd GTX 470, but my power supply just won't do. What is a good PSU for tri-SLI'd 470's (assuming I will overclock them as well as the CPU, so I'll draw tons of power)?

The two best ones would be the Corsair AX1200 and the Antec High Current Power 1200. Pretty much the two best PSU's on the market.

Oh man, that's pricey. Maybe Tri-SLI is a bad idea.

There are other options that would be cheaper. I just wasn't sure on what you wanted. Start at the top and work your way down until you find what you are looking for.

Just put in your three cards and it will give you a list of certified PSU's.

I'm far from rich my friend. I just thought anyone who could afford 3 470's had enough to buy a descent PSU. Especially considering it is the most important part of any computer.
