Quadfire 290x & Seasonic X-1250w

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend just called and is offering me his 290x for a bargain price (he's going green...), I'm going to take it off him anyway because I'd be stupid not to but could I install it along with the other 3 cards I have and be ok with my Seasonic X-1250?

I've heard a 290x draws 300w...so 1200w with four 290x isn't going to work by my maths...unless the 300w figure is incorrect?

Do you plan on overclocking ?? I wouldn't be sure if that unit would be able to handle it overclocked, but stock looks ok

Probabably will overclock.

My CPU is 4.7ghz @ 1.335v and I can get the cards to 1175/1250 on the stock bios +100mv.

I have a spare 650W PSU (Thermaltake Bronze)...so potentially when benchmarking I could plug one (or two) of the cards into that. When I'm gaming I leave the GPU clocks stock but the CPU at 4.7, so I could run just the 1250w in that case, I could even drop the CPU freq to 4.2-4.5 with less volts if need be.

I'll pick the card up and post some results later
