Whew... 550 Watt. Thats insane. Yeah, it will power your computer no proble.m, but hes right if you want to crossfire that computer, get a 600watt. But you wont neet do do that, because that Gcard is powerfull enough. So, Yay

nay, you can get a better deal for a little bit more. Remember, wattage isnt everything. You could have a 600 Watt powersupply that cant support crossfire because it doesnt have enough amperage on the 12V rail. The OCZ Powerstream 520 is the way to go with powersupplies around 100 bucks.
