it should be adequate but personally i would have oversized it to 850W as the RTX 3070 likes to take huge gulps of power at random.

Ok awesome. Ill probably get the 1200w only once I get the third gpu. But for now, If I keep the 750w to run the 2 gpu's, or upgrade to 850w to run them, can I run both 4 (8pins) to the gpu's? Here a pic:

As for the 3070, I am using VGA 1 + VGA 2 but for the 1080ti, could I use up the second VGA 1 + CPU? I'm confuse because, 1 (8 PIN) says CPU, and 1 says VGA2 & CPU. If you can clear that up for me that would be great. If I can only use the 3 VGA that it got, ill have no choice to use a splitter on the 1080ti?

if you use 2 3070's you would need around 950W.

what 2 GPU's will you use as even a 3070 and a 1080ti would need 900W (may get away with 850w if the 1080ti was not under much load).

as for the connectors on the back the PSU comes with 4 8pin PCI-E connections as the 3 marked GPU are 2 are single 8 pin leads and the other is a Daisy Chain of 6+2 lines times 2 on a single lead.

the one marked CPU is an additional 8 pin CPU power connection for boards that need 2 8 pin Connectors.

Someone is getting into mining.
Anyways, there is a ton of power supply calculators on the internet.
