Is a 750w power supply good enough to run Radeon HD 6950?

I am looking to get an XFX6950 video card and am wondering if a 750W power supply will handle it?

  1. yes, easy
  2. LOL - I am running a 6970 on a 650W and it can handle easily (2 x DVD.... 2 x HDD.... 1 x SSD..... OC i7... 6GB mem ... case fans etc)

    Its a good'ish quality one though (Corsair).. and that is important... a cheap 750W will probably perform much worse than my 650W good quality... so read up.

    Cheers.

    750 watts is plenty to run 2 x 6950s in Crossfire. You can run a single 6950 just fine on 500-550w. The power supply is the most important part of your computer and you should get a good one. Corsair, Seasonic, PC Power and Cooling, XFX, Enermax, Silverstone and Antec are all good choices.

    The computer I'm building is a AMD FX-8150, ASUS Sabrertooth 990FX board, 6 HDD, and 16MB of Corsair ram.
  5. My above post stands.

    Unless that is a video rendering/editing build you might want to rethink that FX build and go for an Intel build. Because other than those two things the 8150 loses in every single case to the cheaper i5 2500.
