Depends on the rest of your system. You probably could, but it might be pushing it if you're overclocking or just have power hungry hardware, like a 140W CPU and a lot of drives.

the hd 6870 needs 4x6pin pcie connector and that psu doesnt have that better you go with hd 6850 its more then enough for gaming and doesnt require that much power and will be capable with your psu .:)

Says 600w required for xfire. I'd say you're good as long as you have four 6/8pin 12v plugs. OCZ isn't the best brand but those cards don't draw a ton of power.

well, how OCZ isn't best brand,
OP@ yes, that is sufficient to power two 6870s, BTW list your specs but i would say don't overclock anything except cpu.

If it were rated 600W sure. its only rated 504W on tye 12V rails which is cutting it to close for comfort. you don't want it running at max load all the time.

You're also short 2 6 pin connectors

i'd go with TX650 as it has more standard.
