How much power would you need to crossfire these? I cant seem to find it anywhere.

And on the AMD site, it says a single 7870 needs 500w and crossfired needs 600w,
then it says a single 7950 needs 500w but crossfired needs at least 750w...

Will it be somewhere in between?

I would lean towards a 750 to crossfire powerful video cards, its better to be safe than sorry. There are lower wattage PSU's that will crossfire and pump out enough wattage/voltage to make everything happy but they are only top tier power supply units. Dont expect a 600w (no name) power supply to crossfire anything on the planet.

Yeah i was thinking it would be higher than the 7870.
Im not planning on crossfiring yet tongue.gif
But i am looking at getting a new PSU because i think mine is dying.

well it's a great card for a single 1080p monitor, i'll be using it in Multi-monitor solution but even then it'll work really well. biggrin.gif sure you lose 1gb of Vram but if your not in to a whole lot of mods and you don't play with an insane amount of AA it'll be just fine smile.gif

well see how much Vram it takes on your current card biggrin.gif if it doesn't take up 2 gb's with the settings you have and mods then this card will do just fine. =D
