More about upgrading graphics card
  1. Sell your GPU and get single GTX 770 or 780!
  2. I think another 6950 in xfire is not a good option. It was a nice card but is more than 3 years old. And PSU update is highly possible.
    If you want fast update - check tom's recommendations for the month,3107-4.html GTX 760, 770 for $250 - $350 look like nice options.
    Will be significantly faster that the single 6950 and will work fine with the current PSU.
    If you can wait a bit - nvidia just released first video cards from the new Maxwell generation (750, 750TI), no doubt more powerful variants are also coming.
    Me personal preference - I get always latest, may be middle or lower segment but latest tech) Technologies change too fast in the computers to get older tech. This is personal decision though.
  3. thanks for the fast answer! so basically if i get the single GTX 770 or 780 i only need to upgrade my power supply? and the rest still good?
  4. Best answer
    The PSU will handle 770 or 780 OK.
  5. thanks alot!
