That would be a cool project though.
Not much of a project, but it would be damn cool to see it. And what would the speeds be lower in, just games?

That seems about right, although furmark makes the cards use about 250W each. So i know a 1200W will work for sure, but it would be expensive.


Would it also be possible to use the x16 @ x8 cards in crossfire, even with the other two cards? This hasn't been answered yet, so im assuming no.

Assuming the bandwidth won't affect F@H or mining performance, what should i use for power? Here are some options:
2x600W
1000W
1200W
They are listed in order of price.
