All PCI-E gpu's. To narrow the selection down, you would have enter cpu and psu into the equation.

You're not going to be running much with a cr4ppy, el-cheapo, generic $30 PSU .. $30 and 600W, yeah right, they are rated as amongst the worst PSUs in the known Universe, along with Aspire, Apevia et al .. Time to get a REAL PSU ..

Erm, have a read of the CrossFireX pages on AMD's website etc .. yes you need a CrossFire capable mainboard and depending on which cards you get, a CrossFire bridge connector to hook the cards up. Time to do some reading / basic research ..

Erm, tell me exactly HOW informing someone of the state of their PSU when asking what cards can be run off it, is "trolling" - as I'm at a loss there. YOU asked the question and I provided an answer, that's all, get off your high horse.

Yes, your PSU is 100% complete garbage mate, I work with VGA cards and PSUs at work all day, every day and almost 365 days a year. It's a DiabolteK unit and they're known throughout the PSU reviewer's world as "DiabolicalTek" .. for good reason. It's a £30 unit = trash. It's a DiabolteK unit = uber trash.

I forgot, the OEM for them is - Golden Tiger, really really great .. been making OEM PSUs for a little over 5 years, using shoddy components to keep costs down ..

Here's a review of the next model up from yours :

http://www.hardocp.com/article/2010/12/17/diablotek_phd650_650w_power_supply_review/9

.. you can comfortably put you unit in the same review and come out with the same conclusion - garbage / FAIL.

Here's JonnyGuru's review of their 1050W PoS :

http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=187

 

.. 'nuff said really. Some of us know what we're talking about and that's not trolling at all, by any stretch of anybody's imagination.

Fretboard, you could have avoided OP's reaction to your post if you had supplied those same links to backup your original statement. 

....keep it civil gents...

Cheers!

Heh, If I had have remembered any links from way way back in time, whilst writing the post, I'd have included them with it .. but it wouldn't have taken him more than 30 seconds to research DiabolteK for himself and seen that his DiabolteK unit = utter garbage with his own eyes, instead of accusing someone of trolling off the bat.

I had to justify the post after he went off on a rant about "trolling" ..

Alright... I think you've been given enough verbal warnings up to this point.  The people who manage this forum are the ones who decide what constitutes trolling.  We're all adults here, so I had hoped a mostly hands-off approach would be enough, but if we must start poking people with pointy sticks, then that's what we'll do.

In past years we had access to a warning system, plus a "mod preview" feature where posts were screened before going live.  In Fusetalk, we can only give "time outs", so... come back in seven days fretboard.  Hopefully you'll have calmed down by then.

Now back to our regularly scheduled.... threading?

No, it had everything to do with it, at least he had the guts to apologize for it. He accused the guy of trolling, guy proves a point and gets banned for it ? Nice moderating, really nice.

Don't worry about it dude... not your fault.  This is why I call myself "troll hunter". 

What you can get for video depends more on what other hardware you have in the system.  Any power supply is going to eventually run out of power if you load it up with too much stuff.  This is just me, but I'd be looking more towards getting one mid to high end card than two low end ones.  It'll make for an easier setup, about the same or even less on power usage, and you won't have to deal with micro-stuttering or any of the other problems that multi-GPU setups sometimes have.

From the looks of it, you should be fine. As mentioned previously (albeit, rudely), the power supply is not the best and since the power supply is the most important part of any computer, the quality of the power supplied to the components is important.....you may want to look into something better from Corsair, Enermax, PC Power and Cooling, SilverStone or Kingwin Inc......just to name a few.

Cheers!

EDIT: Ninja'd...LOL
