So you think he is cool to just roll the dice and pray he never exceeds that 10 watt headroom? His Power supply is 1000 watts remember
I think he would be wise to get a bigger power supply or just stick with 2 cards, but then again maybe the 295x2 draws less power than 2 290x's.
Either way I know I have 200 or so watts to spare, and I still don't feel comfortable, with only a 1200 watt Power supply. Maybe he would?
Edit- it looks like the 295x2 uses about 50 watts less than two 290x's under load. So he bought himself another 50 watts..plus he prolly has 50-100 watts less with his processor maybe. So he would probably pull close to 1000 watts at the wall, still dang close really.Edited by the9quad - 5/22/15 at 1:35pm
