post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, after much deliberation, I finally am looking into buying a desktop, and decided on CyberPower. SO! I put a build together with a 6990 and 6970 on the 2600K and 8GB Ram... My only worry is if the PSU will be enough?

Complete overkill, 1 x HD 6990 would do lol! But still, awesome rig. Be absolutely amazing.

The PSU should be fine unless you are going to overclock. Otherwise, you'll need a more powerful one.

I do a ton of 3D design. And i already have 3x 480hz Vizio tvs to power, eventually will have 10.

Main problem, is the PSU enough, meaning good enough outputs, etc to power these beasts and the Mobo, cpu, etc.

I have 2x6990, several Hdds and an ssd, 14 fans and other computer periphals all under the Enermax 1250w. You should be fine with your PSU.

you'd be much better off building it yourself...

Why don't you just build it yourself? You would probably save some money.

woah, bet they sound like planes taking off eh?

I don't know what card to get, either a single HD 6990 or a GTX 580, or wait for the 590, hmm!

But yeah, as I said, the power supply will be fine unless he overclocks everything!Your extra 50 watts can be make or break for an overclock.
