Well i mean the if you are to upgrade just the GPU why would you need a new PSU, as far as i read you got a 700W PSU in the box which should suffice the hunger of an GTX 1080.
I for my self upgraded the GPU last year, from a 780 to an 980TI without replacing any other components. The new graphics cards do need less power for their output.

And Btw. i would not try to SLI 2 different Cards, SLI was designed to produce "double" the output if you have 2 cards of the same type. (Interfaces and reasons and stuff is limiting the have a 690 and a 1080 in your pc) I once talked with an GraphicsCard dealer at CBit and he mentioned that it could work but it is not safe to work. Also, why bother with SLI? You get roughly 80%, maybe 90% of the full power since syncing between the cards takes some off (At least when i thought about doing SLI it was like that). So just go for a single 1080 and have sufficient graphics power for the next 3-4 years Smile | :)
