is a 300w psu good enough to run a radeon hd 7750? im building a pc for my little brother, and he prefers it be more like an xbox then a giant hulking space waster. im looking at m-ITX cases on Tigerdirect (cheaper shipping for me) and the highest power supply in their cases is 300w. so will that power a hd 7750 and say an a8 apu?

Hi,
It all depends on what kind of A8 (5600K 100W or 5500 65W) you are using and what kind of PSU is there for reall.
If it is good PSU then you are ok to go with both of these combos. By good i mean you'll need at least 15A on 12V rail of efficient, constant output to run strongest combination (5600k + 7750) without any worries.

7750 has a tpd of 55 watts , even if it is a 100 watt version then you have 145 watts remaining so provided it is a decent psu then yes 300 watts will be sufficient

Just went through IN WIN's power supplies and every one 300W unit they have on web will do the job for you.
You should be ok to go :)

awesome lol thats good to hear :D  now i dont have to waste money on a new psu... atleast i hope i dont. what do you think of this setup? a10 5800k, HD 7750 (crossfiring with the APU), and 8 gigs of ram? what settings do u think i could hit on those. as far i can tell the 5800k also uses 100w. im trying to build my little brother the best computer i can for the price and form factor.

Crossfire only works up to the Radeon HD 6670 or HD 7670. The HD 7670 is the same card as the HD 6670 with a different name and is not sold to consumers directly.

Installing a Radeon HD 7750 or more powerful card will disable XFire.


Regarding PassMark... I and most other people usually ignore those synthetic benchmarks because they have proven to be inaccurate in the past. Better than nothing I suppose, but I consider it a waste of time looking at the numbers.

Crossfiring a the Radeon HD 7660D (A10-5800k's iGPU) and a Radeon HD 6670 will provide less performance than a single Radeon HD 7750 graphics card. The Radeon HD 7660D is only a little better than a desktop Radeon HD 5570 which is pretty weak.

The Radeon HD 7750 is equal to a Radeon HD 6770 and is 50% more powerful than Radeon HD 6670. You probably need to Crossfire two Radeon HD 6670 to equal the performance of a Radeon HD 6770 / HD 7750.

nto the same as crossfiring, but if you can find a motherboard with a lucid chip you can mix gpu's and does not even have to be the same brand or type. my wife is rocking a 7770 with a gts 450 because i already had the 450 and the 770 was a good deal with the motherboard

Rumors have it that the Richland APU may run dual-graphics with Cape Verdi GCN cards but it will be a month or so before we find out.

You need to purchase the fastest RAMs available within your budget ...


The speed bump scales in near-linear fashion. As far as dual-graphics:



This is mobile, but I suspect similar scaling wold apply on the desktop APUs ...
