That's what I thought Solar until my new Classified 780 took out my Antec truepower 750 yesterday The PSU was approaching 3 years of life though and I believe the classified uses a lot more power than a regular 780.
Hmmm then Nvidia should be noted they should revise the power requirements

If that is the case because full load could exceed 750w with that card and OC

Ok it might of been your PSU was giving up the ghost http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/...nsumption.html#. this says otherwise

Yeah I figure the psu just went bad with age, 750 should be plenty really.

Yes I can but I find this to be a odd issue with beta drivers

I don't think anyone is going to deal with crossfire if that is a bug that AMD hasn't found a fix for yet

What got mine working was using Afterburner to unlock the voltage protection then my cards started acting right
