Re: PSU, enough power?
6770 is a 5770 that's been updated to have OpenGL 4.1...that's why they're crossfire capable with each other. They have the same clock speed, effective mem speed, etc.
Yeah, the setup I have plus crossfire is telling me 500 watts. So the one I have should be good, if I go with this setup.
I don't plan on overclocking. But now I'm starting to think if I should just start saving up and waiting for the bulldozer eight core to come out and upgrade everything. Get a new GPU, the bulldozer, and a new psu. Now my question is, should I get one higher end card or a second gpu in crossfire with this one? In other words, should I go with a 6770/5770 in CF setup or one 6970 or gtx 570?
