Ok, 8 Months ago I bought a 900W Antec High Current Gaming PSU 80+ Bronze for my new build and now ive starting to worry wether itll be able to handle my setup...

The specs for the build are:

CPU: Phenom ii X6 1100T
Ram: 16 DDR3 1600Mhz
Motherboard: Sabertooth 990FX
Graphics Card: Crossfired 5970/ HD 6970/ SLI GTX 580


Thanks.

The outervision psu calculator is saying 1300w, whereas the msi psu calculator is saying 450w?

Each dual-GPU card is ~350W peak so a pair of 'em + the rest of your system should be around 850W peak. Should work on a 900W PSU but could be a tight fit.

So, Perhaps I should be selling my 900W and getting a 1500w, Ive seen one online but id need to sell my 900w what sells for about £120 new.

The 5970 is the biggest power hog out of the bunch, even Guru of 3D, who tend to err on the side of caution, reccomends only 1kw for a crossfire setup

If you don't end up with a pair of 5970's you won't need more than you have now, might be better off waiting to sell

Ok, I bought 1500W PSU - 1600W MAX. Atleast there will be less worry about the powersupply now.
