7970 compatibility

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

I'm simply wondering if my system requirements, PSU in particular, are well enough for a 7970 GPU specifically this one from XFX:

If you guys recommend a better manufacturer let me know, I am putting performance ahead of price.

Thank You

you are better of going with either
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=79472

or
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=67343

the XFX card have had issues with users with not being able to O/c or a bad cooler

You might wanna overclock you i5 to~3.5Ghz to ensure it does not bottleneck the card

^^ Agreed with above, i have the sapphire single fan edition and the temps hover around 75-79 degrees whilst i knows thats fine personally its to hot for my liking. You'll be better off with a twin thermo fan edition...

Your PSU will be absolutely fine, i know people running x-fire 7970s off a 750w psu as long as you have enough voltage going to the x-fire cards (1 you will definitely have enough) its all good!
