XPS 8500 running 2 AMD Radeon HD 7570

Is it possible to run 2 AMD Radeon HD 7570 video cards (one came with the pc) in a dell XPS 8500? What would be the benefits? Would i need to upgrade anything else to get the 2 cards working together correctly? Power supply is 460 watts.

  1. Yes. But not worth getting another 7570. I'd rather upgrade to at least a 7850.
  2. Got ya. Thanks! Looking into a new card altogether then.
