Hello, Love the site, it was essential during my build. However, I have a couple questions. First, how much power will I need for cross fire? Second, why is my 3d mark score low? It says my system is performing lower than similar systems.Third, I have a bottom mount psu and will barley have enough room for the second card. This shouldn't be too much of an issue right? The second card will be very close to the psu and 1st card. My windows experience graphics score dropped from a 7.8 to 6.4, is that anything to be concerned about? Thank you for all your help. Any input is appreciated.Specs:

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T
1tb 7200rpm harddrive
one optical drive
2 4gb sticks of 1333mhz corsair ram
750wtt coolmax psu
890FXA-GD65 motherboard
4 120mm fans with one 200mm fan
Mid tower Thermal take armor case.
XFX 6870 1gb gpu

it tells me my score is low too. it was mid range 3 months ago...

is your 6870 stock clocked at 900mhz or is an overclocked model. It may be the you are competing against OC versions.

I would re-post in the Graphics card forum and ask for help.
