Jul 19, 2010, 6:17 PM
My pc specifications:
Asrock x58 extreme
Ram 3x1gb cas 9
PSU CM silent pro 500w
I read in my PSU specs that it can perform at its peak about 620w so can it run crossfire 4890 ? does it offer stability to the whole system ?
Infos + answers are appreciated

no, of course not.
get at least a TX750 or greater even though you might not need that much power. Its better to have more than not have enough.

you have your answer already, but this made me lol.
my CM extreme power Plus 650w couldn't actually power ONE 4890 adequately.
but yeah, +1 to Ovrclkr's suggestion. a Tx750 will do the job nicely.
