I have this power supply:

http://www.solidgearusa.com/en/product_4/6/
It has 2 6 pin connectors and 2 6+2 pin connectors.

I have the following system specs:

AMD FX-8350 4GHz Stock
8GB ram
1 DVD Drive
2 120mm LED fans
1 200M LED fan
4 12 inch LED cold Cathodes
92MM Silenx CPU Heatsink

I am upgrading my motherboard to this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... .

My question is with this PSU can I crossfire 2 XFX 7950s running at stock speeds? The cards can be found here:
http://products.xfxforce.com/en-us/Graphics_Cards/AMD_R...™_HD_7950/FX-795A-TDBC


Also can I use the 2 6+2 pin connectors to plug in the second card?
Thanks in advance.

For a system using two AMD reference design Radeon HD 7950 (non-Boost Edition) graphics cards in 2-way CrossFire mode AMD specifies a minimum of a 750 Watt or greater system power supply. The power supply should also have a maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 45 Amps or greater and have at least four 6-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors.

Total Power Supply Wattage is NOT the crucial factor in power supply selection!!! Sufficient Total Combined Continuous Power/Current Available on the +12V Rail(s) rated at 45°C - 50°C ambient temperature, is the most critical factor.

Overclocking of the CPU and/or GPU(s) may require an additional increase to the maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current ratings, recommended above, to meet the increase in power required for the overclock. The additional amount required will depend on the magnitude of the overclock being attempted.

The Solid Gear Neutron 850W (SDGR-850E), with its maximum combined +12 Volt continuous current rating of 58 Amps and with two 6-pin and two (6+2)-pin PCI Express supplementary power connectors, is more than sufficient to power your system configuration with two Radeon HD 7950 graphics cards in 2-way CrossFireX mode.

You already have enough PCI Express supplementary power connectors and even some spare capacity to handle overclocking.
