    I think its border line hehe


    I ran into all kinds of problems trying to run my crossfire setup with a dual rail 500 watts 18 amps on the +12V rails

    I would give it a try and see if its stable :p

    You should check the 4870 thread before making a completely new one.

    Srsly, half of the "new" posts on this forum are all repeats because people can't be bothered to "search" or "browse".

    I doubt it would work with 30A on the 12v rail? Doesn't he need 32? There's more than just a graphics card running in a computer system, you know.
