    Hi

    I was thinking that for Christmas I would ask for another gtx 760 for my PC. I already have one msi 2gb version and found that it costs around £120 to buy anothe one but I'm debating if it's worth it, should I just save for a gtx 970? I have a 650w psu and have seen that it can handle two cards.

    Many thanks

    TBH even though gtx 760 isn't that power hungry 650W would be kinda pushing it and sooner or later you will be forced to invest in a more powerful PSU. I would just try to find a nice home for that old 760 and go for 970 card instead of SLI.

    If you sould your 760, you could put about £90 towards a 960/380, which would be fine on your PSU and would still be an upgrade.
    SLI set-ups will push many power supplies under 700w, a d I don't know if I'd be comfortable with my PSU at 80% load all the time.
