Does my power supply can hold 2x 6950 2gb version? - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Are you going to be using them for gaming? Or for rendering or folding or what?

I don't see why you would want 3 6950's for gaming. The scaling for more then two cards isn't worth the cost of the third.

I would get 2x 6970's

Or get 2x 6950's and use the rest of the money on a watercooling kit.

Yes, no problem.

@OP - You could more than likely pull off trifire on that PSU. Considering you have enough pins for it. But if you don't then you can always use PCI to Molex adapters.

You could but unless you are gaming at 5760x1080 then one is plenty. You wouldnt be able to run it with that psu or mobo anyway and its crossfire for AMD/ATI not SLI (Nvidia)
