Hi guys, here is my current system. (i bought this system about 3 weeks ago, so everything still new)

I5 3570k 
16 gb g skill 2133 
Asrock extreme 4 mobo 
120gb ssd 
1tb hard drive 
and this psu: 

I am having 1 graphic card from amd, Ati hd 7950 3gb. I'm thinking of buying another one to make a crossfire ati hd 7950 3gb. With all of my current hardware, will my power supply has enought power left to run another ati 7950?

    I would get the largest PS you can afford - I would get a 1000 watt PS minimum for crossfire.

    It should be fine, but don't increase the PowerTune caps on the video cards, and don't plan on giving the processor an unreasonably large overclock.

    I agree - 750W of quality power is more than enough to run dual 7950's (and probably even with mild overclocks), just don't plan on extreme overclocking anything.
