This is my build that i have been looking at, i have found these parts... I will be crossfiring my GFX in future.

I want to know if this will work, if so how well?
Will it fit together?
Are any parts bad like motherboard or networking?
Will it be hard to set up, BIOS, putting together, installing windows with this particular build?
And what concerns me the most is the power supply? Will it run this? And will it allow for crossfire in future?
And will it run the latest games: BF3, Skyrim, Crisis ect?

Thanks For your time and help

yeah its all good , installing windows will be no harder than on any other system
your psu will power your system bit its not powerful enough to crossfire 7850's I think a good recommendation would be a 1kw psu

Yeah I just heard flashing BIOS can be hard to find the firmware... And I wont be crossfiring until probably next year so I could just get new power then.

Anyway thanks for your help, I was fairly sure this would work apart from the power
