  1. 4. I'd go with a single 5850.

    5. The Corsair has more usable power(41 amps instead of 40 amps), is rated for full output at 50 C., and overall is a better PSU.
  2. ^+1... 4) & 5)

    1) ASUS MOBO, since going with 5850 and PSU not strong enough for two 5850's so the PCI-e x4 will not play a factor.

    2) Again ASUS MOBO, since PSU not strong enough to crossfire two 5850's.

    3) Crossfire at x8,x8 is acceptable. You will see a slight performance decrease at 16x,x4.
  3. but my question is if i get 2 5770s....will the msi gd65 be the available option or should i go with the asus p7p55d ?????

    i am leaning a lot towards having two 5770s in crossfire.....as because the performance will be a lot like a 5870 ....as i have read from the various reviews.......

    and will VX550 be able to power two 5770s in crossfire ?????
  4. Which CPU are you going to install? And why crossfire instead of a single card? Especially with those motherboards.

    Here is a neat tool to calculate your power requirements: http://educations.newegg.com/tool/psucalc/index.html

    Hope it helps
  5. well the power calculator provided in the antec website tells me that i will be requiring about 498 watts having a crossfire of two 5770s
    but the above stated says that i will be needing 609 watts...

    which is correct ???
    help me out !!!


    WILL CORSAIR VX550 BE ENOUGH TO POWER TWO 5770s IN CROSSFIRE ???

    Frankly, for a crossfire configuration, it seems a little tight. And you still haven't told me which CPU you were going to use.
  7. i will be using i5 750 !!

  9. No need for double posting, you ain't gonna get an answer any faster.

    For what I can see, even the 600w won't be enough. Personally, I would forget the crossfire and install only one video card. Especially with those low end motherboards that you've selected.

    But i could be wrong.
