    Hey everyone,

    I have a question concerning 6870s in crossfire. The manufacture website calls for at least a 550w power supply for one 6870. My question is, will this power supply handle 2? I believe that it will, I would just like your opinions on the matter.


    CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply (NEWEGG.COM LINK)


    Thanks.


    EDIT:

    I can always try this one:

    Corsair Enthusiast Series 650-Watt 80 Plus Bronze Certified Power Supply Compatible with Intel Core i3, i5, i7 and AMD platforms 650TX v2

    this one is at a good price I think.. And the Z series from OCZ are juste very nice :)

    the corsair CX-600 gives 480w on the +12v, which should be okay but maybe to close to the limit.. Corsair TX650 is 624w on +12v..
