Asus rampage motherbord with 2x sapphire hd 7950 boost?t

I've got recently a motherbord from a frien of me; asus formula rampage 1. And i wanted to buy a graphic card for it, is it possible to take two amd sapphire hd7950 on it?
My dad thinks my motherboard isn't that strong enough to hold both of them.
I've a quad core processor from intel with 2.88 gh for each core.
I've a 350 watt. Power suply.
I've 4 gb ddr2 memory.
Is this possible?
I have everything at home, but not yet the graphic cards because i'm not yet sure about it.

  1. Best answer
    Which specific rampage, and CPU? The new ones will handle it no problem. The rest of the system not so much.
    You need new ram, you need a new PSU, and based on those likely a new CPU.
  2. It's the rampage 1. For so far i know, that's what is they say on the box.
    Also i can't see now what for specefic cpu i've because i can not start my pc. I don't have aonitor inplug at this moment.
    The only thing i know that the cpu is bought at the seem moment as the motherboard.
    And that it is a intel with 4 cores and 2,88 gh.
    I can not change the ddr2 memory because the motherboard can only use ddr2.
    I hope that this is more information.
  3. Ah I see. Depedning on the CPU, which is likely a core 2 quad, it would probably bottleneck the two card. I would say start with one and go from there.
