Default Re: slizone's psu's for gtx 480 3 way sli

I have my power supply I need in the pc power and cooling 1200 watt. It has the proper connections I need for 3 way sli. Fortunately I didn't spend a cent since my friend was using in his system. What I was trying to say is that most of the nvidia sli certified power supplies for tri sli gtx 480 minus the ones I mentioned don't acutally have enough connections on the power supply itself to power 3 video cards. They have the wattage though. Why I am pissed, I just had to give up a 1500 watt silverstone strider because the connection schematics don't have 3 6pin and 3 8 pin individual connectors. Really, that much power and you can't connect 3 video cards, duh? And that's the story with most of nvidia's recommended power supplies too.
