So what I am going to do for now is upgrade my current rig more and go with a tri-fire until I can get the funds to build my intel quad-fire system.

The MaxRevo 1500 will be sufficent juice to power this puppy.

Now I have been getting a lot of guff from intel fan-boys and such about the AMD FX-8350 being junk with multi-GPUs. I think they are being really bias and one sided. Thoughts?

Please use a x79 setup. 8350 is a great cpu but not for this task. You will have 1,5k dollars gpu with a 180 dollars cpu. Whats the point to spend 1,5k and dont get the whole performance?

I have heard about a store around there. I take it that it's pretty decent?

Why isn't it? I am just curious really becuase all I can for info is that "AMD sucks go Intel" to put it bluntly. I mean is it better for a single or dual GPUs?

Because you need high IPS for multi gpu. 8350 lacks the IPC to push 4 gpus or even three gpus. I love amd but its the truth.Just go look on the valley thread on the multimonitor results. Compare red and tsm score.

I believe you buddy, I just wanted someone not bias to give me facts on the matter. I was hoping I could get away with my board and CPU but I will try and sell em to offset my costs.

Thanks for the info!

Ok so this is my current build plan:

Mobo: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
CPU: Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80619i73930K
SSD: Intel 520 Series Cherryville SSDSC2CW240A3K5 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
RAM: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 32GB (8 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory
Video: HIS IceQ X² H797QM3G2M Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card (4 in Quad-Fire)
Audio: Creative Sound Blaster Recon3D Fatal1ty Champion (70SB135400000) 5.1 Channels PCI Express x1
Storage Array: Seagate Barracuda STBD2000101 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (4 in Raid 5)
Chassis: Corsair Obsidian Series 900D CC-9011022-WW Black Aluminum ATX Super Tower Computer Case

Cooling will be a custom built water cooling system that will come later on.

Debating on the PSU due to wattage concerns. Now you guys have an idea of what I am going to be running will the MaxRevo 1500w be enough to power this puppy?

Also if you guys see something that will work better for this setup let me know.
