Would this PSU be enough?

For a crossfire set-up of this GPU?

Including the usual set-up of a computer build? If you need anymore information just ask, I'll be happy to help you, help me. :) I'm not going to OC anything in my rig simply because I don't want to take the risk that's already there being computer components are two-faced sometimes.

  2. Thanks for telling me! Fixed it.
  3. no...you didn't. lol
  4. 6870s are not very power hungry, you could crossfire them on a high quality 650W PSU easily.
    So there is no need for a 1000W PSU and there are some other PSUs around ~$130 I'd prefer to have.
  5. @casualbuilder I think I did now. :P
    @Silvune I actually already have the PSU purchased. The GPU, MOBO, and CPU are the only things I need left for my build which I'll be purchasing exceptionally soon.
  6. At that note, thanks Silvune. :)
    I was originally going to buy a 6970 then thought a 6990 but I knew a 6990 would probably kill my machine if I superclocked it with the little tab thing. Then I thought I'd get 2 6870's because I can almost get double the power for 2 cards instead of a 6970. And seeing as how those 6870's have 2 gig vram. pretty much get the power of almost a 6990, but not close at all. :P
    Edited new to knew.
  7. Personally, i would like to see you get a single 69xx. You wont need 2 cards yet, and you can save up for a 2nd if needed. an HX750 is a great PSU, and will have more than enough for your system.

    for this system, i recommend a ASROCK GEN 3 MoBo with i52500k, or an AMD 960T and ASROCK 990FX board.
  8. Thanks for the help!
    I'm getting this MOBO http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128514
    And this CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103913
    I didn't want to get the 8150 because a LOT of people say it blowed so I might wait till the 8170 to see if that is any better. Higher stock speed but might not be always better.
  9. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102918 I'll get that card instead. Thanks everyone for the help. :)
