If it helps, the Antec HE 550, TPT 550 and TP2 550 are all Crossfire certified for the 3870, the Corsair 550 puts out as much power as any of them. homerdog April 14, 2008 12:18:31 AM rodox4 said:If i decide to plug another video to do crossfire (assuming that i use 2 ati 3870) will the PSU handle it?

The VX550 should easily handle a pair of 3870s. pokemon April 15, 2008 11:34:10 PM You can find the TX650 for a few dollars more, they did have it for $75 after rebate, but I'm not sure if its still going.
