  1. the 7970 is really efficent in, for a card that can outpreform a dual gpu card, it dosent pull alot of power

    altough amd hasent put up specs, though the 6990 only needed 1Kw for Xfire so it should work

    edit: guess someone posted the specs? :P

    The Radeon HD 7970 has similar gaming power consumption to the Radeon HD 6970:

    Radeon HD 7970 Typical Gaming Power: 189 Watts
    Radeon HD 7970 Maximum Card Power (Furmark): 270 Watts

    Radeon HD 6970 Typical Gaming Power: 185 Watts
    Radeon HD 6970 Maximum Card Power (Furmark): 287 Watts

    For a system using two Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode AMD specifies a minimum of an 800 Watt or greater power supply. The power supply should also have a combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 63 Amps or greater and have at least two 6-pin and two 8-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

    The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 (CMPSU-1050HX), with its +12 Volt continuous current rating of 87.5 Amps and six (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, will be more than sufficient to power your system with two Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode and plenty of reserve capacity for any overclocking of the CPU and GPUs you may want to perform.
