Was considering getting this PSU but I wanted to know if it can handle my rig. I don't have the second GTX yet but this is what my rig WOULD be. currently using fortron blue 500w for single GTX

 

DFI Lanparty UT SLI-DR @ 300fsb

audigy 2 zs

2x evga 7800gtx

a64 s939 winchester 3200+ @2.4ghz

benq dvdrw 1620

fortron blue 500w

raptor 74gb

2x samsung IDE drives

2gb ocz kit ram, OCZ5002048ELGE-K, 250 1:1 1T 3-4-4-8

 

Thanks a lot for input everone! I've just read that the 600w isnt'a true 600w and it can't handle Oc'ing.. but I wanted real users opinions!

I have heard that the seasonic and OCZ could be better PSUs.. but the thing is that I am able to pick up the EG701 for $130 CDN from someone so it would make hte deal extra sweet. BUT! If it can't handle my computer then it's useless

The 600w enermax has the same 18A on each of the 12V rails as the 535W so your relly not helping yourself. If I were you I would get the Fortron epsilon 700W PSU has 15A X4rails for 60A on the 12v. That will be my next purchase.

Thanks. I also read the 12v is only actually working at 9.8A (some review.. SPCR?)

 

I decided against the purchase.. don't know whether getting a 2nd gtx is worth it anyway.. probably better waiting for the next gen card. and getting a better psu like the one you mentioned :)
