and one is 450w running 4 pciex16 powered extention cables to run 7 graffics cards.

This is very interesting. rolleyes.gif What kind of results have you seen with 7 GPUs? It's a mixture of AMD and nVidia so how does that work? For all that money, how come you haven't bought a new case that could hold the majority of the items?

Its alive!!! Just posted woohoo, no results yet as out of case i had 4 gpu's plugged in, now that i got four extenders this is the first time its even worked in the case!
I will update yas as i go, as far as the mixture i dont use any sli or crossfir cables and run with UBUNTU and try a few drivers. I want to do a bit of litecoin mining too ;-)
Reason for buying? It was all off ebay 2nd hand, fixed some of the stuff others just needed 5 years of dust removed lol. I think ill leave it on forever for fear of not turning on again!

So can you even use all of those GPUs with UBUNTU?
