Hey guys, so I've been thinking about going crossfire sometime in the future, however I'm not sure that my current PSU wattage would be able to handle it, also taking into account the periphirals I have inside. I'll list my specs and you guys can let me know if I'm in the green. BTW, I do not plan to overclock if I do go crossfire.
Core i7 3770k Stock clocks.
Rosewill Hive 750 watt PSU
2 Mechanical HDDs
1 DVDRW (don't know why I have this anymore) I can disconnect it if need be.
Asus Xonar DG soundcard
4 DDR3 RAM modules
XFX AMD Radeon 7950DD (Obviously)
5x 120mm fans
I know the AMD webite says minimum 550 watts but I just want know if I can comfortably do it, even with intensive games such as Skyrim and Crysis 3 because I heard of cheap 900 watt power supplies dying when gaming with graphic intensive games. Then again, they were cheap.
Rosewill isn't a bad choice of PSU. 750W will leave some headroom. You're fine.
Waaaay more than enough. Those cheap 900W PSUs died because they are made of straw and leaves. No heatshrink, terrible soldering, crappy components that will overheat like nothing else.
Alright guys, that settles it. I feel a lot better. Thanks :D appreciate the help.
