Crossfiring AMD Radeon 6850s

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi just wanted to ask a quick question, I've searched around about crossfiring two 6850s as I currently have a 6850 and crossfiring it with another would boost my performance at an affordable price, I am planning to do this later in the year perhaps around august, I believe I have a 600W Corsair 80plus PSU and everywhere I've looked seem to be pointing in the direction of having a 650W PSU to crossfire the 6850, I don't feel keen on purchasing another PSU since I only got this one at the beginning of last year and I wish to upgrade other things such as my motherboard, would it be possible to CF the 6850 on a 600W PSU? Or do I need to look for a 7800 or 8000 series card in the future to replace my current card due to my PSU's limitations?

You'll be able to easily CF 6850's on your PSU, even in CF I don't think they will use more than ~525W (depending on the rest of your system)

Oh really? wow that's surely put some reassurance and hope back into my heart, I love this little card and to CF it would bring my performance upto around 6950-7850 levels, perhaps more and only on games which scale decently with multi gpu.

Thanks
