This is just my opinion but I would use no less then a 1kw psu for even 2 7950s cause if your overclocking your gpus and cpu @ the same time the more headroom the better i imagine you are putting alot of strain on your psu.

Its meant to be a measurement of how much voltage leakage the chips (I believe RAM) have and how much they have to be overvolted to meet specifications. In all reality, its not key information.

Also I am thinking of doing a fresh reinstall of Windows using the Win8 CP on Wednesday. Anyone here have any experience with Win8 DP and a 7970?

I will not recommend Windows 8 to anyone in this thread due to the huge number of issues suffered on the platform the drivers are being written for. You are more than welcome to try, but be forewarned, very few people will be with you and able to help.

Theoretically, yes. Its very rarely caused an issue. Since almost all of the 7970s are reference design, you should have no issues. But do make sure its not a pre-overclocked/overvolted BIOS. There are some floating around for LN2 and would ruin your card.

There are so many conflicting problems and no real way to fix them with the cards/drivers as is in Windows 7, so it will be almost exactly the same. tongue.gif

I have 2 7970's and overclocked too 1200/1600, it pulls 790w from my UPS at most. I've checked with a bunch of different programs.
