Hi Guys,

I forget to ask in my previous thread.

So... Is 550w. PSU enough for 1 4850X2
I am asking because i read on somewhere
that i atleast should have 600w.

But i was running 2 4850's in CrossFireX no problem.

4850x2 uses less power than 4850 in CF... (Cause it only has to power 1 board, along with some other smaller things that are combined, requiring less power). You should be fine.

The minimum PSU requirement (on the box) for 1 4850 X2 is 650w. Not gonna speculate whether 550w will cut it, I'd just go by the box though.

The minimum's are in place as a safe measure because the majority of power supply's at 650W will run this card. A 550W will be fine, especially if he ran 2 before in xfire. Just make sure your not loading up on HDD and ODD, and it should be fine.
