I need a reliable power supply, because I have a 500w, and obviously that is probably not enough for one 6870.
How much would I need to crossfire two 6870's safely?
On a seperate note, could two XFX 5770's run Final Fantasy XIV (Or a current game, like when Crysis was new) on high/max settings? And what power supply would those need?
One of my cards did about 2500-2800 (Score on FF XIV bench marker) With 1500 or below being insufficient to run the game.
Basically asking because I currently have a 5770, and am looking to upgrade so I can run Final Fantasy on max settings. And two 5770's vs two 6870's is a $350 price difference.
Inside of the spoiler is the scores for the benchmarking tool. (Free, just google final fantasy xiv benchmarking tool)
