Crossfire R9 280X power consumption

Hi

I currently have a Gaming Rig with the following Specs:

i7-4770K
MSI Z87-GD65
16GB DDR3 RAM
128GB OCZ SSD (I know, it failed on me last night)
1TB Seagate HDD
Corsair H100i
Corsair TX850M (First revision I believe)
LG DVD Reader/Writer
Powercolour R9 280x

I'd like to know if this setup will be able to run another R9 280X. Will the PSU be able to handle all of this, plus another R9 280X?

    I think you will be fine. Those power supplies are really good.
  3. You are looking at ~650W for a CF setup of those cards with everything running stock. An 850W PSU such as yours will have no problems.
  4. Thanks, so my PSU should be able to handle the H100i on top of this as well? I'm a little worried that my H100i is going to be too much for the PSU if I add another GPU.
