  1. How silly; trying to use 4 gpus on one board. Imagine the power supply required and the heat generated.

    AMD don't support tri-channel, only dual-channel.

    I'd go with 2x6970 or 2x6850.

    PSU: Something good above 650W for 2-Way Crossfire. Seasonic, Corsair, Antec, XFX, PC Power and Cooling.
  3. well it is silly if your using a airflow cooling system im using full water cooling sytem for it, and i have already bought a ultra 1600 watt psu got it cheap so thought why not and i know its massive over kill, ty for the recommendations and tips, :)
  4. At least you're prepared. If you can afford the electric bill, then go for it. If you want to see if it's worth it, try measuring the frame rates with one, then two, then three, and all four video cards.
  5. Pretty sure that after three he won't see any big difference. Have that PSU a 80+ certificate?
