4 5850s, did i read that right? It cant be done, you can only physically fit 3 dual slot graphics card on the M4A79T deluxe.

Your build is all sorts of out of proportion. For that amount of money you should be getting an i7 on an X58 board, 6GB of ram, a 5870 or 5970, and a good 750W PSU, that will last you a long time, save you quite a bit, and perform better in many tasks.
