970 and 4870 x2 Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm picking up a Phenom II 970 and 4870 x2 up tomorrow for $220. Great deal, but I don't know if my power supply can handle those + if I overclock at all. Im using the 650hx, I know it's a great power supply and can handle a lot. But, with 2 hard drives the 4870 x2 and the 970 could I run them stock, let alone overclock?

Thanks in advance, Hope I can find out before tomorrow.

I've seen xfire 5770's, 4x 500gb wd blacks run on a hx650 so i would say you have head room for sure.

Okay, I trust you all and the well built corsair Psu's.

Anyone know if there is an overheating issue or World of warcraft issue with the 4870 x2. Sorry, i just don't want to drop money then be F*%#ed.

Thanks again, I love this forum and everyone's fast responses.
