Can i crossfire with this psu?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Was looking at getting another 6950 when the prices are right, wanted to know if my psu could do it?

Would it be enough for the crossfire setup and ocing? Thanks

It probably depends on what kind of other hardware you got running etc.

I think the req for 2x6950 is 600W. I might be wrong, can't remember exactly. I'm running 2x6950 on Corsair TX750 + PC @ 4.7GHz. I used Watt-o-Meter or whatever they call it and got max reading of 400W taken by the PC while gaming.

Just for gaming you will be alright.
If your into stress testing / folding / overclock and benchmarks then youll need a bigger one.

I'mm running 2x7970s on a 650w Corsair. Had to wind back the cpu overclock though. Just don't stress test with things like Furmark. Power draw during gaming is much much lower than those things.
