It should power it easily. 50A on the +12v rail seems adequate too.




Edit: So you have both of these components and are having problems? or are you considering purchasing one of them?

This is always a good source too

Here is Guru3D's power supply recommendation:

Radeon HD 7950 - On your average system the card requires you to have a 500 Watt power supply unit.
Radeon HD 7950 Crossfire - On your average system the cards require you to have a 700 Watt power supply unit as minimum

I have both and I can only boot driverless or in safe mode



Did you download drivers from MSI or from AMD? Whichever you did, I'd suggest you uninstall and try the opposite set.

My mobo is an asrock 870 extreme3 btw, and I have a phenom II x4 955, with 4gb ddr3 ram. I can't find any solution since last night.

I just tried reinstalling windows, and it looks like the install is hanging at "completing installation"

If windows wont install thats a much more serious issue than your video card.

Assuming you get the install to work - Maybe a motherboard issue? Can you find new drivers/software for the asrock?

Just formatted my drive, and reinstalled windows. Will update as soon as I get the display drivers installed.

It seems to boot fine now after the windows reinstall! I hope I don't have any future problems :D
