This is true but it's mainly for 890fx boards and I don't think this one will support it, and if it does it will be extremely limited by the 4+1 power phase. Depends on if biostar decides to release a bios update Pretty much.

Your PSU will handle it, Just that its not exactly a trusted model in book. It will handle a 6950 or GTX 560 Ti easy but a good 650w would be in need if you wanted to Xfire/SLI so you didn't overload that OCZ PSU.

Either direction will work, upgrading or replacing. Depends if you have the money to replace it or not.
