    Default EVGA GTX680 Classified SLI PSU Question

    Hi guys im new here and have a pretty good PSU question that I cant find answers for Ive been wanting to hook up my 2nd GTX680 to run some benchies but am limited with my PSU, So far Im running my EVGA SR2 with stock Xeon X5650s and 1 GTX680 Classified on a Gigabyte Superb 720W PSU, If I hook up my second GTX680 Classified in SLI can I run just the second one alone on its own PSU its a leftover Thermaltake 430W PSU from one of my older builds and still functions perfectly all I have to do is connect both PSUs together so they short out simultaneously on startup. So for clarification the 2nd GTX680 will have its own PSU and I will use 2xMolex to 8pin connectors to power it up since it only has 1 6pin PCI-E on it. Thanks, Btw I know some would think If I can afford 2x 680s why not buy a new PSU well reason is Im waiting for EVGA to release their line of PSUs end of the month

    Why not just used the Gigabyte PSU to run both cards? You already tried it?
