Can the corsair hx650 support 2 6950s?

Postposted on Wed Oct 12, 2011 3:46 pm

I helped my friend build the latest TR sweeter spot system and he wants to add another 6950 gpu. Can the corsair hx650 support two 6950s, two hard drives, two sticks of ram, and an intel i7 2600? I think it should work but referencing corsairs site says otherwise.

I get a recommended PSU of 464 watts. So I'd say 650w should be more than sufficient :D

EDIT: Wrong link
If common sense is so common, why don't more people have it?

Thanks! I was pretty sure it would work but it's not my money/computer so I wanted a second opinion.

I ran dual HD5870's off one. So I think you are fine.
