  2. Oh and check on the ATI site to be sure your MB can support CrossfireX!
  3. Do you mean you're going to crossfire either two 4850s or 4870s?
    Not a 4850 with a 4870.

    Btw, you'll need 8 pin PCI-e connectors for the 4870, which the PSU doesn't have. You'll need to get adapters or something.

    The 2nd one only has a single 12v rail?

    I get the Corsair. It's a little more expensive than the PC Power & Cooling, but if you read the reviews on the PC P&C, alot of buyers are getting dead units.

    A single 12V rail is the best way to go. And as other's pointed out, crossfire 2 of the same card...don't crossfire a 4850 and a 4870.
  5. i really need a modular psu, i cant stand haveing a bunch of cords that i dont use/need blocking airflow. so if you can recommend a better modualr psu thats at least 750w ill compare and thanks guys for the help

    ati.com only shows certified amd cpu mobo's but my asus p5q pro has 2x pci-e 2.0 slots that will run crossfire at 8x/8x.
