Can my 'old' system handle duel 7990's? what do you think?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok. So Power Color is going to crap out the first 7990 and its going to be expensive, granted we anticipated this. My question is can my current system handle it? Will it bottle neck? will it even work? I'm sure it will but I would appreciate the input from the community before I drop two large on them. Don't worry about my power requirements I plan to get a separate power supply for them.

core specs:
intel 980X pushing 4.2 B1 LGA 1366 1.4v
Rampage 2 extreme pushing a FSB of 200
All water cooled.
24 gigs of Gskillz RAM triple channel 2:10ratio NB:3207.6MHz

I don't see why it wouldn't, your system is still pretty high performing.

Although it is very possible that any system might bottleneck a little on two 7990's..
