I have some questions about running crossfire with two 7850's. I already have a Sapphire Raden hd 7850 2gb OC edition and therefore i was wondering if i have to buy another OC edition for this to work. I am not very good at the more technichal aspects of pc's and i cant seem to find an answer and therefor i am asking you. :) 
I am also planning on upgrading from 8 to 16GB Ram because i read on AMD's website that it was recommended.

Thanks, Jakob

System spec:
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7850 2gb OC edition
intel i5-3550
asrock z77 pro4 motherboard
Corsair Vengeance 8GB ddr3 RAM
Antec High Current Gamer HCG-750W

It doesnt have to be the OC edition just a 7850. You dont need 16Gb of ram for gaming.

You don't need a OC'ed version but is is highly suggested that you get one from the same company.

Thanks for the answers!
So I can just buy the 30$ cheaper 2gb version? Sweet!
A quick question, is my powersuply capable of handling the crossfire pressure?

Your 750w Antec should be fine.
