my video card is a Sapphire 7770GHz Oc Edition and i wanna Crossfire it. i have a 650 antec power supply with dual 12v rails on it the Graphics card only takes a single 6 pin and i have 2 6pin connectors with a optional 8pin on both i read that it will only take nearly 400w for my card on Crossfire i have only 1x 500gb HDD seagate a wireless pci card i have a normal oem dvd burner i have a gigabyte ga h77 d3h mvp motherboard i have 4x 120mm fans and 1x 180 or 200mm fan its a AeroCool VxE Limited Edition Case and plan to in the future to get a blueray dvd drive and a 2tb or 1 tb Seagate Performance HDD nxt year or in few months would my psu be able to handle it ??


this is the review im going on http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/4572/sapphire_radeon_h... its not a sapphire 7770Ghz oc Edition but its still a overclocked Sapphire 7770 OC and so i rounded 379w to 400w to be on the safe side

It would be better to get a single more powerful card as CF/SLI with budget cards are more prone to micro stuttering vs higher end GPUs. Here is an excellent article by Toms on this subject. Your PSU is good for even a single GTX 670/HD 7970.

Hmm, if you can't get a refund, then you can get a second one. But honestly, micro stuttering with your class of GPU's is not worth the upgrade to CF/SLI. If you can, try selling the card, if not, then you can CF it, just expect micro stuttering.

Actually, AMD cards perform better than Nvidia cards in Metro 2033. ;) 

In the future, if you ever plan to run multiple cards, it's best to start out with a single high end card, then add the other later on.

Your PSU is fine if you want to CF your current card.
