I'm currently seeking my first Crossfire build. But I have a Diamond Radeon 5850 HD which has been discontinued.

I'm a real stickler for matching cards. However, is there a compatible card I can pair with my current Diamond Radeon 5850 HD, which will have no compatibility issues?

Also: How big of a power supply would I need?

any 5850 will work. Diamond are not a popular brand so it would be hard to find one. Probably best to go with a reference design, not a custom PCB model, less chance of incompatability. You should have at least a GOOD QUALITY 650w power supply, preferably 700w.

Hmmm. Corsair TX 650w would work?
