Hi, found your new thread.
I can see svenge has guided you on some small changes.
Good idea to go with the -GD55, the extra phases doesn't hurt.
I did not have time to search for possible cheaper PSU, sry about that.
SLI/Crossfire is generally only a good idea if you need the power here and now.
A single 7950 at 1080p@60 Hz will only be limited in Crysis 3 at the moment.
I think it is a better plan to go for a single 7950, let it run it's course for 2-3 years, and by then just buy what you can afford from the future generation of GPU's.
The CPU should still be good at that time, if the CPU usage trend from the last couple of years continue.
You generally want the CPU to outpace the GPU, because the CPU has other things to do than feed the GPU.
Your setup should be bottlenecked by the 7950 in most games, but you will not notice it because the bottleneck is beyond what you can see on a regular 1080p monitor.
