Suggestions on PSU for X-Fire 4870x2s?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was actually powering my 4870x2s with a Thermaltake Toughpower 1200w PSU but I am using it in another rig now. I switched it for a Corsair TX850M Enthusiast but I get an error saying my power may be insufficient.

I'd like to get a not so expensive PSU, yet not a terrible one either. I know how you guys are awesome at finding deals thumb.gif

Nothing wrong with your current PSU, it's plenty for your hardware..... what error are you getting exactly?

Your graphics board may not be properly supported by your computer's power supply. The cards performance was decreased. Check all cables.

shouldnt be a problem? 250-300w /4870x2 = @ most 600w plenty of headroom

Update your drivers... see if anything changes... the PSU is plenty for your hardware.
