Are the cards still running hot? Download afterburner and turn the fans up.

Yeah sounds like a psu however system usage for 6870 xfire is only around 415-500 watts.

How do you have your cards hooked up? molex to 6 pin or what?

Zero try using just one molex connecter per 6 pin and see if that works. Your power supply should be enough.

Also of you are overclocking you may want to put that at stock until you are running stable. PSU might not be able to handle it all.

The AX no doubt. Get it NAO.

The AX will last you a long time.

I would also remove the second 6870 ASAP until you get the power supply as to not damage any components.

Yeah your PSU is a pile of crap. A good 750w psu is fine for that setup, not a crappy one. But yeah, get the AX750.

The Ax 750 is Gold certified and the Hx is Silver certified. The AX is still the better psu even though the rails are different.
