    Just be sure to get one big enough to handle the second 1080 you know you will end up with.

Right now, they're hitting the power limits under higher overclocks even at 230-240 watts. I'm guessing once the Pascal bios editor comes out, we'll see their overclocking performance really come long as they're kept cool.

    Veering from the path....

    Guys, I finally decided to just keep my 750 watt PSU. In the future I won't be doing Sli or Xfire, just single vid card. I'm expecting to buy the 1080 in 7 - 12 months.

    I think that you're all right about wattage. I'll never use up 750 watts with a single bid card and even if I were OCed too.

    Yeah, not with a 1080 anyway, and certainly not on air.
