Just so u know you're going to have to use ugly molex adapters for running a 2nd card.

Anyways I am sure you will be fine. Obviously it depends on the game.

When I had crossfire 7850s it ran smooth for me.

In all honesty I would get one beast Video Card. Like a 290/290x/780/. Unless you get a 7870 for dirt cheap then sure go for it.

Yes it will. It's not like your system will be 100 percent load anyways.

It depends on the game. I would overclock it as much as possible.
