So XT 600W vs. S12 II... S12 II wins? Is it more durable or something like that?
I don't know much about this, :S

The S12 has better components that are capable of running better than the XT when heat builds up.  Heat will cause cheap parts to degrade and eventually fail.  Cheap parts will also usually mean instability when the unit is being stressed.

 

I mean, you can take a chance with the XT.  It might be totally fine, I would not though.

 

I have an old PC with a 750 Ultra LSP.  It is not a high quality unit, but it has been running steadily for almost 7 years now.  My XFXPRO 750W PSU (Seasonic built) runs fine too (3.5 years).  :D

 

I actually bought a Corsair CXM 550W as a back up recently... just in case one of the PSUs fail.

 

@DaemonWarrior44  I should mention, MEC is right... the 520W S12-ii is cutting it pretty close.  The 12v rail used to power the GPU and CPU will provide 480W total, not 520W.  That is 40 amperes (amps) on that 12V rail.  40A x 12v = 480W

 

It should still work fine.

Wow! If you're reading this, then clickbait is real, xD...
I wanna know how big my power supply needs to be to handle CrossFire.
P.S: I wrote this here because I don't know whether if it goes in PSUs or in GPUs. Sorry for the "joke".

Then pick one...

 

With RX480s I'd say a 650W should do fine

Yeah, if you can recommend me some PSUs I would appreciate it

Haha, why?

Crossfire 480s are a waste of money. Get a single GTX 1070 instead.

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
