Question. I have the opportunity to obtain a HD 4850 X2 card (2 4850's on single card). I can't find a clear answer as to whether or not this card requires a crossfire compatible motherboard. Any help?

I have a 700w PSU. I am under the impression that that should be enough?

no ir does not..
it requiers quiet a lot of power ;]
as long as you have single PCIe x16 slot you are good to go

Is it a good quality PSU? You should be fine, I'm running 2 4870s on 750W with an overclocked CPU and 3 hard drives.
