Hy folks ...i want to upgrade a bit my pc and i would love some feedback...checked some forums,some people say ''yes'' other says ''no'' sau i've just came here where to ask...in december got a lovely surprise like christmas present,i would say a lovely upgrade to my phenom 2 x6 1055t,so here are my new specs:
i7 3930k stock
16 gb ddr3 1600mhz corsair vengeance
2 tb hdd
asus xonar D1
coolermaster haf x full tower case
gpu is my old hd 6970
arctic i30 cpu cooler
psu corsair tx 750w
my question is...would i be able to run another 6970 in crossfire on this psu safely?
I do not plan to overclock,however i'm wondering if a 6970 cf will receive some bottleneck regarding the stock speed of the cpu?
first of all,thx all for such a quick reply...the CPU was a present from my wife like christmas gift...and i must say i was stunned about his performance,as i already finished diablo 3,MOH warfighter,bf 3 and dishonored...however it's dam' expensive,with about 20 pounds rebate i've got it with 420 pounds from overclockers...
good to hear the psu will be fine...a second 6970 should offer me a nice boost increase as i'm waiting for crysis 3...and a used 6970 i can get for about 90-100 pounds...don't need to break the bank this time
I'm out of topic with this one,but i will never go back to amd cpu's...cost far less...but the performance is also quite low in comparation with competition...
I'll third the OK for your existing PSU with its 62A +12V rail. Each card will require about 21A at full usage. Just be sure your PSU has the necessary 2 x 6-pin and 2 x 8-pin PCIe pwr cables the 2 HD 6970s will require.
