  1. The PSU is enough for adding a second 7950 in Crossfire.
  2. Personally, I would go for an 850-1,000W power supply. Check out this power supply calculator: http://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index.html
  3. the psu is fine.

    i am concerned about plans to xfire. there is almost no actual benefit atm for xfire as it's broken. if you MUST have a multiple gpu rig, grab yourself 2 670s to SLi
  4. That HX 750 will cf 7950s fine. No need for the extra fan, but it won't hurt.
  5. This is an example of a perfect build. All the components are chosen well.

    ^ Almost agree.
    I'd suggest you run with a single HD7950 (unless your going Eyefinity) and see how it works out, for a single 1080 monitor the 7950 is usually enough, especially if it's overclocked.
    If not, well, you were going CF anyway, were n't you ;)? .
    Either way, you've really done your homework, fine build, Sir!
  7. Thank you everyone for all your help. Appreciate it. Will go for only one 7950 and see how it works before getting a second one
