Seeing how you have an AM3 motherboard, an AMD CPU will probably be close to bottlenecking two 6950s even a fast CPU.

But that motherboard has the space to install those.

Any good power supply in the 700+ watt range can power the cards, you said CPU but sounds like you meant GPU. This is a list of the AMD certified power supplies, http://support.amd.com/us/certified/power-supplies/Page...

You need a PSU with 4 75 watt video card connections, or an adapater.

Sure why not? Just make sure your power supply can handle it.
