That Asrock 770 is 16/4 so is not recommended to run CF anyway

59.99

5 dollars more, 500gigs more. Well worth the money.

Pay attention to the people above me on the mobo, running a cf on a 16/4 connection is not at all recommended and you will not see a good performance increase for the second card.

Another concern, is the psu you picked out enough to run cf with two 6850's along with what else you have.

I don't know, but those are some suggestions you can ask these fine people here.
