I just recently built a multimedia computer, so I can house around 190 blue ray movies and around 400 dvds. I also do some mild gaming, games like( Just Cause 2, Crysis 1, and kingdom of amular Reckoning). I do need multi monitor support because I am also going to use the computer for work which is just basic computing (internet, word, excel, and work program. I was thinking of crossfiring the xfx ati radeon r7770 1gb I know people say 1 good card is always better but for me it is not an option. I work with four 23" monitors for work all are at the resolution of 1080p. I am also on a budget for the graphics cards. Also would a corsair cx500 watt power supply suffice for the two cards, I know they only consume 80 watts at full load each. The reason I was asking if I could use the 500 watt corsair was because newegg messed up my firends order and shipped him 2 by mistake and I can get it for free

The system specs are as follows
zalmann z11 plus case
970a-g46 msi motherboard
phenom II x6 1045t overclocked to 3.4ghz
8gigabytes of ddr3 ram
OCZ agility 90gb ssd boot drive
500 gig hard drive(western digital took it from old computer)
3-3tb hard drives
pioneer blue ray reader/ dvd burner

Yes you can crossfire the cards. Yes, your power supply can handle them.

Trying to figure out how you're currently running four monitors off of this card. Please explain?
