You bought that Fermi card, but how do you plan to power it?
[H]ard|OCP brings you the solid numbers on what is need to power the newest of nVIDIA’s cards, both singly and in multiples. Almost two dozen PSUs are recommended by the end as the power requirements of a single GTX480 might be high but seem almost reasonable compared to a tri-SLI setup. If you have a wallet thick enough to pick up these cads, you really should invest in a solid PSU at the same time. It is also a good guide to anyone building a rig with multiple cards from the Evergreen family.
