Multiple Crossfire over 5 Monitors

OK, I need some help on this one.

My motherboard is the MSI 790FX-GD70
I have a Corsair HX1000w Modular - 1,000 Watt Power Supply (with six of the 6+2 PCI-E connectors)
Two ATI XFX 5850's (Each 5850's has 2 HDMI's, 1 DVI, and one display port)
Two ATI XFX 5670's (Each 5670 has 1 HDMI, 1DVIm and 1 Display Port)
Four Asus 24" VW246H Monitors (Each Monitor has 1 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 Display Port)
One LG 47" LCD TV - Model 47 LC7DF (with 3 HDMI connectors)

I want to crossfire the 5850's together (for my bottom two 24" LCD Main Gaming Monitors)
--- and then cross fire the two 5760's together (for my top two Monitors and the LCD TV)

I tried this and got Hyper Flood Transport Error Crashes

Ran the 5850's in PCI-E slots 1 (x16) & 3(x8)
Ran the 5760's in PCI-E slots 4 (x16) & 5(x8)
FYI - PCI-E slot 2 is just a PCI-E x2

What I need to do is run all four 24" monitors. Running separate Warcraft accounts on the bottom two monitors, and leave the top two for maps, outlook, Wikipedia, etc.

Running the 47LCD is just whip cream on top. Don't need it but would like it.

Any Suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated

I have never heard of having multiple crossfire setups in the same computer. My first impression is that it is impossible. If you had 4 of the same car you could do Quadfire.
