XFX XTR 550 8pin pci-e question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a XFX XTR 550watt psu, which has 2 6+2pin pci-e connectors. However they daisy chain off one another. I am thinking of picking up a Fury card if I can get it cheap but im concerned about putting that much power through basically 1 8pin.

Doesnt anyone have experience with this or know if this is unsafe?

Unless you are going for extreme overclocking or BIOS volt mods you dont need to worry about using a single cable.

Fury draws about 250W max, -75W from the pci-e leaves 175W so it's fine. XFX XTR can take that.

availability, price gouging and poor temps? You can get a fury on newegg with promo codes for 275 cheaper then AIB 480s

not mention in most reviews the 480s gets about 56-60 fps in frames while the fury at same settings gets 70-75+

you will use the 2x6+2 pin power cables no? because r9 fury nitro requires them not onyl 1x8 pin

also R9 Fury is faster than RX 480 even OCed
