The Setup looks cool, but don't safe money on PSU, cause it will blow up your card/cards... But right now I would say Single 7950. Then you will be able to take another one later on, if needed. Instead of replacing both cards. FattyPatty February 6, 2012 8:33:09 PM verdenshersker said:Which PSU at 750 Watt are you planning to buy?
