I've got a ATI XFX 6870 Black Edition at the moment and i'm thinking of upgrading to a 7870. I'm just wondering if a 650W power supply would be enough to support this and the other components in my computer?
Also, i'm thinking of starting steaming and i'm wondering if my computer would be able to handle it. I have the sufficient upload speed.
ATI XFX 6870 Black Edition ( I should have a 7870 by then, however )
4GB DDR3 Dual Channel @ 1333MHz (I'm thinking of upgrading to 8GB, is it worth it?)
i5 2500k 3.3GHz
One last question, I set my CPU clocks to 4400MHz on my BIOS and then saved it and restarted my computer. However when I go into system it reads; Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500k CPU @ 3.30GHz 3.30GHz.
Easily run with 650w and although Xfire requires at least 650w, that would most likely be fine too. Windows doesn't always show overclocks. Good software will though and so will your start up screen. I would use CPUZ. I would definitely run at least 8GB of memory.
