Thanks to all! More about : 6970 55Range January 25, 2011 4:21:06 AM Yes it can. Depends on your motherboard though. List its specs. As for psu , am guessing its a Cm, then you are fine. Best solution briovaz January 25, 2011 4:31:33 AM http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/amd-radeon-hd-6970-over... ACCORDING TO THIS YOUR SYSTEM SPECS ARE FINE. and you are good to go!. try to overclock your cpu to gain 3.0 or 3.5 ghz. and about your power supply use this and calculate the power needed. http://www.antec.outervision.com/ and what is your motherboard? hope this helps!

It would only bottleneck if you are playing at a low resolution. At 1080p or higher, it would mostly be fully utilized depending on the game.
