Hi, i have a slight problem - I'm not sure if I've got enough wattage to run my system

 

Current system:

Sapphire PURE CrossFireX 770 (PC-AM2RX780)

AMD Phenom Black 9950 (2600 mhz, quad core)

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850X2 (2 gb ram)

1 x Maxtor whatever sATA HDD (80 gb)

1 x Samsung whatever sATA HDD (81 gb)

2 x CD/DVD-combo

 

I dont think I've forgot something :P

 

My current PSU is a 460 watt Thermaltake (obviously not enough!)

What to choose then? I've been looking at a 750 watt PSU, but I'm not sure if that is enough -- and if it is -- Is 750 watt enough for two 4850 X2s in x-fire?

 

 

 

Hope u can help =D

two 4850x2's in Xfire on 750W may be pushing it. you may want an 850W, that should be enough.

hmm.. maybe, i think you will be fine with a 750.

but if you can find a 850w for around the same price, go for it. if its a good brand

go all balls out and get a 1000 watt power supply. that way you can plug your coffee maker into it also.

 

 

Lol ... 1kw+ is maybe overkill ^^

 

I think i'll go for something like 750-900 watt ...

 

Hope it's enough!
