Default Re: 4870s

I would get a new Corsair power supply.

But if your new monitor isn't at least 1920x1080 then Crossfire won't be needed.

Don't worry you will be fine, that psu has 17 and 18A rails and even thought it's not gonna be 80% efficient it will definitely be enough to run a single 4890/4870 if you were to get one. But of course if you want crossfire you will need to upgrade. It's not worth buying a whole new psu just for one gpu upgrade.
