My question is in the title, Will my corsair cx750W be able to run msi r9 280x crossfire and a amd fx-8350? I will overclock nothing.
if you need other specs about my built tell me...
I would like to play call of duty ghosts with it.

thanks!

I wouldn't try it , the CX750 is a budget power supply , not meant for what you want to do.

For 2-280x's id go with a quality 850w.

What is it meant for than?


I think it should be able to do what the ts wants and i would try it too.

Would an antec with a similar wattage be a better choice? Like the next,

it's about the same price,

or the next one,

or,

still far of $120.

You Will be fine! 750w is plenty enough for cf 280x. People allways overkill with psu. But cx From corsair aint the best psu for doing heavy work over time.

For tom's an old thread which probably is already solved though no best answer was selected.
