  1. Easily I'm using that power supply for crossfired 5850's.
  2. sweet thanks man do you know if i can crossfire it because it says that some motherboards cant crossfire this particular graphics card because of the physical size of it
  3. You don't need to worry about size unless you go up to a triple slot card like the one you're getting. I would go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102951 for a 6950 If i am correct then on this card there is a switch to swap it to a 6970.
  4. If you want to objectively, accurately and scientifically determine what PSU power is required for your Vid card and PC in both watts and 12v rail amps., the forum Utility link below will show you how easy it is to calculate this information and objectively determine which PSUs are quality built, reliable PSUs that can meet your needs. Be advised that the available 12v rail amps. is just as important as the total PSU wattage. You need both to be correct.
