Would that suffice for 2x6870's?
Can't see why not
that's a so so brand at a too high price... I'd rather get this if it was me:
Last one is my personal preference, but I'd buy any of them and be satisfied....
^ +1 much better PSUs there, even my PSU, the HX650 is a better buy at the same price http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139012&Tpk=hx650
Word. I like the flat cables, look nice. Thanks for the help postal.
Just ordered that one, thanks. thats a much better buy.
no problem if itz not too late too change there is also this one to consider, Antec Truepower 650, which is highly recommended at 650W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...371021&cm_re=sntec_650-_-17-371-021-_-Product
I'm not sure which is better tho, this or the HX650
I'll stick with the corsair since I put it through already.
So I've got pretty much a whole other computer that I don't know what to do with since I've upgraded.. whats a good idea to use it for? It probably WONT sell for anything considering the prices you could buy a new one for.
media server maybe? low power PC to stream video to all other PCs and media players
Yeah, possible. I'll try it out.
it will work fine if the 630 watt psu is half way decent...the cards dont really draw much power at all. even a high end system with 6870 in xfire probably wont draw more then 450 watts.
sigh, read my first post.
his power supply may have a rating of 630w peak, but he's only got enough amps on the 12V rail for a full load of 408w.
cpu = 125w (unless he got the 95w hexacore), add in 300w for the crossfire setup, add in 50-100w or so for fans, hdds, optical drives, etc, and he's blowing way over.
its silly to risk hundreds of dollars of computer equipment because you wanted to run a cheapo power supply.
