You could probably run a 7850/7870 Crossfire on your rig. Or a GTX560 Ti/GTX670 SLI

But I would wait for more input from the people here since I know some OCZ PSU's have some problems. What is the exact model?

Depends on which OCZ Model we are talking about.

The power requirement statement are overstated. The power consumption for one test system with 6950 in CF is measured at 479W only:

But unless the 6950 is in great discount, there is no reason to get it with 7850 available.

Yes, it should. But like I said, you are better off with 2x7850.
Are you inclined with the 6950 because you saw a great bargain for them?

Yes I seen 6950 2gb versions £136 each :)
