If you want to crossfire the mobo i posted supports 2x PCIe 3.0 x16 Slots, Supports AMD Quad CrossFireX, CrossFireX and NVIDIA Quad SLI, SLI the mobo you picked is a little better but cost more of course either will be fine as for what wattage you want for that i am not sure Guru3d suggested 650w for 7850 crossfire http://www.guru3d.com/article/amd-radeon-hd-7850-and-78...
