I want to run a radeon 6970 and a 7970/8970 on my dual monitor setup, I currently have a 750w power supply and im wondering if this is enough?

  1. Hi :)

    8970 ????

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Not much is known yet about the Sea Islands series, but 750w should be more than plenty for a single GPU setup, so you're good to go. :)

    Glad to see YOU are psychic...because nobody here is....

    It might take 10,000 watts...

    Oh and you do realise Wiki is NOT the truth ?

  4. Don't have to be psychic

    More then likely the 8970 will fit within PCIe power specs, so your looking around the 300w mark at a guess
    Can't do any better then guess at this point

    But logic dictates that if GCN architecture improves you can see better power savings over the 7970 power usage

    Generally wiki articles with relevant citations (which it has) can be trusted to be somewhere close to correct.
