Will this PSU handle my upcoming setup? Tags: Power Supplies Components Last response: September 1, 2012 7:51 PM in Components Share electricfirebolt August 31, 2012 3:10:06 PM 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.

Should work on a 900W PSU but could be a tight fit. | Report abuse electricfirebolt August 31, 2012 3:26:32 PM 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. | Report abuse delluser1 Power supply Master August 31, 2012 4:57:52 PM electricfirebolt said: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 http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5970-review-tes... 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 | Report abuse electricfirebolt September 1, 2012 7:51:54 PM Ok, I bought 1500W PSU - 1600W MAX. Atleast there will be less worry about the powersupply now. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>Will this PSU handle my upcoming setup?> Related ressources: ForumUpcoming 2013 Build Forum$550 Core I5 Gaming Pc For Handle All Upcoming games(1024*768 pixel) ForumLooking for a Great Video Card for upcoming AAA titles!
