  • Be Quiet 730w

    Would it be enough for 6950 xfire?

    I reckon so yes, provided you're not running crazy overclocks and masses of hdd's

      running stock 800mhz , only 1 hdd.

      You think getting another would be worth it spaceboy? Would i notice the increase in performance on games

        run msi afterburner, see if you're gpu limited.
        running the 2gb version ?

            Yeah, you can turn on the "on screen display" so you can see your frames-per-second, gpu usage, vram usage while playing a game

            If the gpu is nearing 100% a lot of the time then you may benefit from a 2nd card. If your vram usage is hitting 100% (2gb) then you won't benefit from a 2nd card.

                I've been running mine for about 6 months now. They scale pretty well, I'm pretty happy.

                Allowing that your game/program has proper crossfire support, they will still out perform most of the newer single cards apart from the very top end ones.

                  oh, one more thing, the PSU would be noiser at a higher load

                  however if you doing xfire, then probably noise is not a concern I would think

                        its at around 70% on APB , 40-70% on Guild wars 2 but that isnt optimized properly. Ill have to test it properly once i got BF3 reinstalled

                          Heres a screenshot for gpu info on skyrim all maxed out settings. Get 30-90 fps depending on where i am.



                          I forgot it resized the image, anyway it says 99% gpu usage

                            +1, 6950's don't use that much power so two on a 700w+ psu should be fine.

                              You should also overclock.

                              Just use the catalyst drivers set GPU clock to 840mhz and memory clock to 1325mhz and don't change voltage or board power. This is 99.9% safe and crash free overclock for a reasonable performance gain.
