    all thanks to the great review above

    There was however a cracking deal on a Hercules psu 600 watt 80 plus Rhodium had some great specs too & the seller only wanted £10 inc postage but never heard of Hercules psu so stayed clear :=0

    You choose the G-series 650W for a second GTX 770? If you stay with only one the G-series 450W is more then enough, even with OC.
