First Build, Budget for GPU around 150$ - 200$

I have a few questions about my build.

G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
HITACHI 750GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
ANTEC Three Hundred Illusion Case
AMD 1055T Thurban 2.8 GHz
SeaSonic x750 Gold modular 12V
MSI 890 FXA GD70

Do I have enough power for xfire 6950? i might overclock my CPU and GPUs too?
If in case I can only get a single card, will my PSU be overkill for my system? :-s?
Also, is there any recommendations about graphic cards or anything about my system are all welcome ~ =)

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this month (the closer the better)
BUDGET RANGE: 150$ per card ~ I prefer No rebates ... too much troubles :(

USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: High End Gaming [High to Ultra setting on MW3, BF3, METRO and other graphic intensive game

CURRENT GPU AND POWER SUPPLY: (e.g., ATI Radeon HD 4850 and Corsair 750TX 750W PSU - without this info, it's really hard to help you)


PARTS PREFERENCES: Prefer AMD graphic card because I have a mobo support xfire only.... Nvidia card works too if

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes [ well someone could recommend me a good single card then it's cool too =)

MONITOR RESOLUTION:1440x900 17", I would like to get a bigger screen in the near future

Please help me :) thsi is my first build !!! Thank you

More about first build budget
  1. your psu is nice it can handle hd 6950 cf and cpu gpu both overclocked.:)

    if u can afford a little bit then get these one of the good card for the price.


    or if not then the hd 6850 its also good for its price but not much as the hd 6870.
  2. I am thinking about whether or not to get a single card like 6950 2gb or just try to xfire lower cards like 6850? What is the lowest price for these anyone knows? (So i could aim for that price =) )
  3. get an single hd 6850 instead of hd 6850 cf.the hd 6950 2gb price will be around $250.
  4. this one for perfromance,powerful build,warranty and cheaper price.:)
