My current rig :
Motherboard: H61M S2
CPU: Intel I5-2500
Memory: 1x8 GB Kingston Hyper X Fury
PSU: CX 550 M Corsair 80+ Bronze
GPU : GTX 1070 TI
Storage: Seagate Barracuda (during research I found that SSD is much more energy-efficient, so I think I will change this too later, what do you think ?)

I want to buy another GTX 1070 TI, and I'm pretty sure I need to change my PSU with a more powerful one, so...

  • Any recommend PSU that can handle 2 GTX 1070 TI?
  • Do I need to buy any additional parts except GPU-Risers?
  • Any good recommendation for SSD 120 GB?

1: EVGA 850w gold or better would handle that just fine.
2: make sure the PSU has the necessary GPU power connectors.
3: you'll be running dual 200w gpu's and your worried about the 4w saving you'll see by replacing your hdd with an ssd? Anyways, you'll probably not find one that small except in used and with your bitcoin on it you don't want that. Grab a Samsung 870 Evo 250gb, Crucial Mx500, or a Seagae ironwolf NAS.
