I just purchased a Corsair 850TX 850 watt PSU on Amazon for about 134 shipped (Im a Prime member) and I was wondering if you guys think it will power 3 Sapphire HD5850's and a Gigabyte HD5870 rig?

Here is the link for the specs:

Haha almost bought the exact same PSU from amazon today.  $4/item one-day is v nice.

I think it's pushing it with that PSU, but it may work out

5850 are about 180W, 5870 is about 200-220.  That leaves you with only 90-110W total for the PSU, and quite a bit less than that on the 12v

Thanks for the reply. I think I will still end up using the ePower Juicebox to power one of the HD5850's then.  This will take about 180 watts off the corsair PSU, and I may even use the juicebox to power the CPU since it has a CPU power header. It will run 450 watts, but I dont think its very efficient.  Hopefully by moving 180w from one of the 5850's and then 40 watts or so for the CPU over to the juicebox, it will leave enough overhead on the corsair to keep it stable.

Using that one for 4x5830's and a 955 Quad Phenom ~300mh/s per card.  Has been running 5 days that way.  Came with a single 70A 12V rail.

STOP wasting your MONEY !!!!!

LSE.Solar done it again. We produced a PSU breaker board which will blow your mind.

We used a 800Watt Server Power Supply with a real 12V Rail delivering on 120V  over 70AMP.

PSU + Beaker board = 59.99 USD

Yes you guys hear and read correct. So check us out at http://LSE.Solar
