That's right. I've upgraded my rig to be ready for the next gen of AMD Chips. Yes, FX-1850 wasn't so killer against the i7 2600ks, but that's another topic. Right, my next move is to upgrade my GPUs or add another card for Tri-Fire. The million dollar question is, is my CorsairTX 750 Watt V2 strong enough to add to a 6870 Tri-Fire?
Here is a graph on total power comsuption:
492 Watts + 163 Watts = 655 Watts (Not including Blu-Ray Player, Fans, HDs, CPU, etc..)
Tri-Fire 6870s are wicked sick, since the 6870 Crossfire is faster than a 6970 and even GTX 580. So, it's a bit pricey since the 6870x2 is around $500 a pop.
Now, the 5850 Tri-Fire. Here is the power consumption chart:
316 watts + 305 watts = 621 Wattage (Not including Blu-Ray Player, Fans, HDs, CPU, etc..)
You can never go wrong with a 5850 Tri-Fire because even with a 5850 Crossfire, its faster or same FPS as a 5970. The upside is I can probably buy a used 5850 for around $150 and just flash it with a 5870 XFX XXX Black Edition like my two cards now.
So, any advice would be nice
