  1. 750w is not going to push two of those cards. Also this board down below is a 16+2 phase board as is that one you have up above, and it's going to clock every bit as high as that one.

  2. also keep in mind thats a massive 3 slot card, meaning that with two of them, they are going to be sitting right up against eachother, and will take up an absurd amount of space.
