I have Dual 4 GIG Black Edition 5970's Crossfired - so yes. It can be done. I also do have the Silverstone 1500 Watt Power Supply though. You're looking at at least a 1250 watt PSU to Crossfire these. By the way - 1250 Watt is the Minimum Recommended Wattage to do so. With some searching, you can find it on the XFX or AMD site, I forget which I saw it at. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources : Forum5970 Black Edition Problem. Help please.
