  1. No. You will need 850W for them to run in crossfire.

    http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=78945&promoid=1101 XFX made by Seasonic.
  2. I doubt it. You could boot and browse the web just fine with it, but as soon as you put stress on the GPU's you simply won't have enough watts, and i don't think it's good for your PSU at all.
  3. atleast 750w+80 gold to turn on the pc and browse and 850+ for overclocks
  4. why you dont go for a R9 290x? better and no crossfire

    Sorry but it won't hold it under load and that PSU isn't reliable enough to even try..

    PS the actual everyday use of each 280x is 250W so it's 500W only for the GPU's, so there is not enough power to sustain the build.
  6. I am going with KINGWIN ABT-850MM 850W ATX 12V v2.2 I hope it works!
