Good luck on the build! anort3 August 26, 2012 10:39:24 PM Actually HD 7870 Crossfire needs a recommended 600w power supply so while the OCZ would probably work you might be pushing it trying to run 2 of those cards. It is fine for a single card. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer bloodmage7 August 27, 2012 11:48:15 AM 550 W should suffice you easily.
