I am still curious whether I can do any crossfire using only 620W.
What are the possible options I got with this?
1) can I run 2500K overclocked to 4.3Ghz + 6850CF?
2) Can I run 2500K OC to 4.3 + 6870CF?
3) Can I run 2500K OC to 4.3 + 6950CF?

I heard that using 620W is not safe so if I want to use upto 80% of what it can do, which is the highest option I could have?

I got 1 SSD, 1 ODD, and case that has 4 fans.

I would say all of them here is overclocked I7 lga1366 total system load stress test with CF 6950 509watts real gaming load 470watts.

I didn't know 5870 consumes more power than 6870. That's alot :o 

By the way, why isn't crysis pushing as much as furmark?
As long as graphic cards can't run games more than 60fps, doesn't that mean they are already at their max limit?

The HD68xx cards are really energy efficient!

The 68xx line up is the new mid range, its supposed to be about half way between the 57xx and 58xx cards so its not huge on the power consumption. I agree with Rolli i think all 3 are an option on the M12II 620W unit.

Furmark stresses every part of the GPU to max capacity, so it gives exagerated power consumption numbers for real world scenarios because you will never find anything else that will use absolutely all of your GPU power, there are usually some parts that arent running full tilt which is why crysis isnt pulling quite as much as furmark.
