I am building a PC for a friend and he has requested the ADM Spider setup with Crossfire cards.
the graphics card I have selected based on his price range is GV-RX385512H from gigabyte.
He also wants the AMD Phenom 9500 Quad core.
I am looking at the Thermaltake Toughpower 850w - W0131 to power the beast but am unsure if it will work with Crossfire. It is listed as certified for SLi. Does that matter?
Will a smaller PSU suit the quad core and Crossfire setup. Only other things to power will be DVD dual layer burner (SATA), 400Gb SATA 2 HDD, 2x 1gb DDR2 PC6400-800 ram sticks.
Has a few system fans too.
Note this system will be upgraded to 4x1Gb PC8500/1066 eventually and possibly a secondary HDD.
It may also get a different mobo to allow quad crossfire later. I'm still working out the details on that with my friend.
