Upgrading my rig, little help please :)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just a quick question on whether or not my PSU will handle my upgrades.

Currently have a Corsair HX750w PSU powering a Sapphire HD 6870, 8GB RAM [1333], a crappy optical drive, 2.5TB HDD @7200 and a 640GB HDD @5400

So my question is, if I buy another HD 6870 and 16GB RAM [1600] will my PSU manage or will that need upgrading?

Cheers

You should be perfectly fine on 750 watts plus corsair makes good stuff you wont have a problem adding another card and the ram upgrade is a minimal power consumption upgrade.
