I am upgrading from a 6950 to 7970, is 550 watt enough?Confirm please? Tags: Homebuilt Systems oceanrocks August 31, 2012 5:00:57 AM Hey guys, On Guru3d it says minimum PSU is 550 watt. Is that enough? Currently this is my system: CPU: AMD X4 965 3.4 ghz (not overclocked) GPU: 6950 ASUS 2gb, AMD. (not overclocked, but this is the unlockable version) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-870A-UD3 SSD: 60gb patriot inferno HDD: Samsung 1tb HD103SJ ODD: LiteOn DVD-rw Fans: 4 (which came with Corsair 500R) + 1 I installed on the top. CPU Cooler: Coolermaster Hyper 212+ PSU: Antec 550watt true power semi modular. This was built in March 2011. So basically I just want to get a 7970 in the next 3 months. I am in no hurry. So is 550 watt psu enough realistically? On a side note: In 3 months' time how much can I sell the 6950 unlockable 2gb version for?
