    If it did it with the i5 760, it'll do it with the 3570k. The 3570k uses less electricity compared to the 760, so your power requirements will actually drop from your current set-up.

    Ok, well I'd be kinda leary about it. 750 is the lowest I would comfortably attemp that with. I've ran a pair of 5870 cards with my current 750 watt psu.(2600k in system specs)
