Dual 5850s on my PSU. Is it possible?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a Core i5 750. I have a 5850 too. My PSU is a Cooler Master Silent Pro M600. Can I crossfire my 5850?

That psu can do 40a/480w on 12v. One 5850 can take up to 155w. Based on what you have, cpu and GPUs run at stock speed, it should br fine. You need a solid psu does 50a/600w on 12v if you want to OC cpu and 5850CF.

You'll be fine.

I'm with Linskingdom on this one, you'll be OK at stock clocks, if you want to do any overclocking, then you'd want to go to something with 50a on the 12v line, or a 650w PSU.

thanks for the replies.

what about 6850 crossfire? will I have more OCing headroom with that compared to 5850CF?

two 6850s are about the same. They'll consume a bit less power than two 5850s under Furmark, but it's pretty much the same under a normal gaming load.

ok. i suppose one fast card would be better since I dont want to get into the hastle of changing my PSU right. That is of course if 5850CF on stock will be faster than, say, a 6950 or 570
