I will shortly buy one moore of this cards and I am wondering how big PSU I would need? I have found some sites that suggest atleast 750W, I think it sounds to little or is the sites right? I would go for a 1000W PSU so that should make it right enough right?

This card has rated at only 180W, my system with the 780 Ti WIndforce which is rated at 250W only uses a 650W supply so I think you could even get away with a 600W.

I have HDD on my desktop but I got a laptop with SSD and I turn it on and get onto Game-Debate on Chrome in about 15 seconds, it's absolutely insane! Maybe even 11-12 seconds if I didn't have a password. BIOS time is 4.4s…!
