Why didn't you just do 2x 7970's?

Yep. It's pretty crazy.
@OP, what PSU do you have?

He does eyefinity.
Just check his member configuration.

A setup like that should come with solar panels for the roof as an accessory...

sounds right,My system is pulling 700 watts at load,corsair AX1200 watt psu here.

my other question is,what is you system specs now?your configuration with a CH3 doesn support trifire,only crossfire.Not to mention also a 965 will be a bottleneck,even O/c'd.

My 1100T o/c to 4.0 and dual 6950's are already at 100%(in bf3) usage.

Good choice,Thats what I'm running,tried 2 CHV's,both failed.Naa.I run 2-6950's with out any bottleneck,but 3 7950's....I'm curious to see if you will encounter one,keep us posted/GL
