im wondering is it possible to use an XFX 7950 and a XFX 6870 is the same rig.
i dont mean crossfired together, i just mean use them both without a bridge.
the 7950 on a 32" hdtv (1920x1080) and the 6870 on a 17" monitor (1366x768 i think)
i already own a 6870 and my 7950 is getting deliverd in two days.
idea being that when im gaming ill get the full memory etc from the 7950 while on the other monitor with the 6870 watching a film
Hmmm, 1050W? Make sure it's not a Diablotek; that PSU-shaped object was found to be a 500W-550W PSU by testing at Jonnyguru.com, where I believe it even fried some of their test equipment when it choked, smoked, and CROAKED.

lol ino that, im planning on buying a 1050watt psu next week at some point then setting it up. and no the 6870 will never be at full load, only browsing and watching films etc,
you don't need a 1050 watt PSU; the combined power for both cards are at most 310 watts (145+165) being used with two 6 pin (6870) and one 6 pin and one 8 pin (7950) PCI power connections. a quality 650 watt will handle that, no problem. add 150 watts for the system (a bit of an overestimate) and thats 460 watts/12 volts for 38.3 amps. to keep it under 80% load 38/.8=48 amps.
