Can I run any of these with my PSU?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi I was looking for picking up a HD 5870 1GB or HD 6950 2 GB Reference. the first card consumes like 188 watts and the second one consumes 200 watts. I use Phenom II 1090T and mobo is a 890 GXM. My PSU is a XFX 550W pro Wired edition. So I was wondering if I could run any of thsese cards with my PSU. Please help.

Yes, it should be perfectly fine but if you are planning to crossfire with 6950 x2 in the future you might want a 600watt+.

Ever consider the HD 6850? Use less power and cheaper to buy

no 5850 is lot cheaper than 6850 now, but I am considering a 6950 reference
post #8 of 8
Good luck finding a new 5870. They're pretty scarce right now. The 6950, however, is plentiful.
