2x Amd 6950 crossfirex power supply requirements Tags: Radeon Graphics Last response: May 6, 2012 12:14 AM in Graphics & Displays Share draven501 May 5, 2012 4:41:50 PM I was thinking of getting a second GPU identical to my 1st one for a triple monitor setup, would my current PSU fit the bill? Also, would that second GPU generate too much heat? (Currently running at around 70 degrees C on BF3 Ultra) Should I invest in a better CPU Cooler or something? Here is my rig: Current GPU: MSI Twin Frozor III Radeon HD 6950 2gb PSU: Corsair TX850 (850W) CPU: Intel Core i7-2600k OC'd to 4GHz w/ stock cooler Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200 RPM SSD: Corsair Force 3 60 GB DVD Burner: Lite-On 24x Case: Corsair Graphite 600T W/ 2 additional 120mm fans (room for 2 more) More about : amd 6950 crossfirex power supply requirements geekapproved May 5, 2012 4:45:51 PM Yes Anonymous May 5, 2012 4:51:35 PM your PSU is plenty. it would be wise to get a case fan or two to exhaust the added heat.
