4890x2 PSU requirement Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: January 25, 2011 11:43 PM in Components Share thepregnantgod January 25, 2011 8:13:13 PM Again, I'm turning to the community because I'm getting conflicting responses in my online research. I'm currently using a BFG 1000W PSU. However, I'm running the following: Asus P5Q, Q9550 (oc'd to 3.8ghz), 8gigs DDR2 Radeon 4890x2 Crossfire X (Oc'd) 6 SATA drives 6 SSD drives 1 DVD drive 5 Gentle Typhoons 1 H50 Waterpump 2 140mm fans Plus 6-8 USB devices Now...yes, I've tried the calculators out there - some give me a req of 750W - some say 1000W. What is your opinion?

Currently, I'm running Dragon Age Origins in the background and the wattage pull from my UPS is around 400w. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
