i was thinking about getting the AMD FX-9590 Eight-Core 5.0Ghz Processor and Corsair Hydro H60 Liquid CPU Cooler (refurbished) and Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 AM3+ Motherboard Bundle. Also i would like to put 2 XFX Radeon HD 7850 Core Edition FX785ACNL4 Video Cards into it and run it in crossfireX mode. Since this Graphiccards are using 2 slots each on the back of the Case, i was wondering if i have enough space on the motherboard to fit them boards in. I would appreciate any help i can get. Thank you!

Motherboard will fit both cards, i have dual 7870 ghz boost editions on mine, other than studdering issues on bf4 it runs fine and board will still fit a third card, but pce slot is a 2x i think on third slot so not worth the third.

well, safe your money..
get a 8350, and decent cooler..you'll be able to touch 5Ghz clock without throw away too much money..

h60 is not good enough to handle 5ghz fx cpu class..
at least you'll need best air cooler available, phanteks ph-tc14pe, or even best liquid cooler (nzxt kraken x60 or corsair h100i/110)..

And, single strong card is much better than 2 weak cards run in crossfire..
more power requirement, excessive heat, microstutering problem (it'll really hurt your eyes), and troublesome setting..
i suggest you to take 7950 or better gpu, rather than 2x7850 in cf mode..
