Hi All

Bought this system in June 2012, AMD A6-3620 Quad Core with Radeon 6530D with ability to crossfire for dual graphics with a discrete card Radeon 6570, so would I have to update the power supply before I eventually get this thing crossfired? Getting soon a 20 inch LED monitor as well.

Thank you all in advance

What's the current power supply? Per AMD's specification:

400 Watt or greater power supply recommended (500 Watt for AMD CrossFireX™ technology in dual mode)

Ok Then will research for 500 Watt Models, Current wattage is 300 Watt Factory Default one, So will start looking at 500 watt power supplies and get one that hopefully will fit with Modular cables I think at this point.

Affording one is the next issue, will have to save a bit to afford one
