can my psu seasonic x series gold 1250w handle reference HD 7990 crossfire (4 GPUs) - Page 2

Make sure your CPU is up to the task, or you'll run into a bottleneck like I did with 7970 TriFire on a 2500K. I don't think a 3770K @ 4.6 will push QuadFire without a bottleneck...just sayin...

Just wanted to point out that I ran into a bottleneck with my 2500k @ 4.5. It just couldn't push the 3rd card very well...
