Can my PSU(Chieftec Nitro Series 750W) run two 6950's in crossfire?

If not what is recommended?
I'll take it!

If it was a good 750w, then yes.. easily. Unfortunately it isn't.

edit: did some more searching. Apparently it's based on the same platform as the TX750. Go figure.

You might be okay. I'd be careful though.

I kind off regret cheaping out on the PSU, but I was starting to run out money when I was buying the PC =/

I've also been looking at two 6870's the performance on those in crossfire seems rather good =)
I'll take it!
