Icehousewill, is there a reason why you're wanting to Crossfire these cards? You could always give one video card a shot first to see how you like the performance. That would definitely be an easier load on your PSU. If you go with two 4890's you may have to pick up a different PSU. According to this review
, a single 4890 at full load draw's close to 400 watts (total system power). Remember you have a quad core. Also if you plan on throwing in more drives the 12volt and wattage requirement goes up. Surely the OCZ 800W would allow for two 4890's but would it give you more room to upgrade later own? Probably not.
Just thought I'd let you know
