Hi all,
I am planning to build an i5 2500k, 7850, 8gb RAM, 1tb western digital, 60gb ocz agility, Coolermaster 212 EVO pc. I was wondering what motherboards would be able to run crossfire 7850's if I want to upgrade them, I was looking at some z68 mobo's but does 16/4 pci-e work? What motherboards do you suggest(preferably £60-80 ($90-125). also what kind of psu would I need to run this pc with say the i5 4.2 ghz~ and 2x7850's would 550w do or is 650w necessary?

Thanks in advance,
fin

Thanks! I've even found the z8z68 for only £75 @ http://www.amazon.co.uk/Asus-P8Z68-V-Gen3-Mainboard-Mem...

Is that 750w psu really necessary?

650Watt is necessary i just added 100W to give you breathing room but you could don't have to get 750Watt AMD recommends at least a 600w for crossfire of 7850
