I recently got given a ati hd 5850 graphics card, due to my old 5850 having a bit of a noisy fan , got told the g card didn't work but decided to test, graphics card didn't post so that was that . thought id salvage the fan of it .
I then got bored and decided to see if it would work in my rig, in xfire along with my current 5850. but then realised my psu didn't have enough pci connectors
found 2 of these
the pc booted ok , but locked up on the windows 8 password screen , and just wouldn't go past it ,
so my questions are . do you think my psu is enough to take 2 . 5850's?
would it be an idea to format Os might be incompatability with xfire .
or do you think splitting the pcie cables like that might be 2 much of a power draw for the psu pci connector?.
or worst come to the worse its the gpu that's just dead
