Can my XFX Core Edition SingleRail 750W run Crossfire Radeon HD 6950s?

Hi! I currently have a 750W power supply that runs my Powercolor Radeon HD 6950 2GB with no problems. I was looking to get a second Radeon HD 6950, but the second one is made by XFX. I heard that as long as the clock speed and memory is the same, it should have no problem.

What I was wondering is if my power supply could handle two 6950s. This is my current power supply:

My full set up right now (with nothing overclocked, and don't plan to) is:

Asus P8Z68-V/Gen3
i7 2600k 3.4 GHz
Intel 160GB SSD
Western Digital Caviar Black 2TB 7200 RPM HDD
3 200mm Red LED case fans
1 200mm no LED case fan
Radeon HD 6950
16GB Kingston Hyper X Ram
And the power supply I posted up there ^^^

Thank you in advance :)

Edit: Just wanted to clarify that I DID look around a bit, and a lot of answers said that if I have a good quality PSU, I should have no problem. The main reason I'm asking this is to see if my PSU, in specific, can run two cards.

  1. Actually it can run 3 of it without a real problem.
  2. So does that mean that this Power Supply really gives 750W? I heard that Power Supplies don't give as much wattage as they state.

    That's for the cheap garbage PSUs, yours is a very good quality one.
