This is my PC
Sabertooth 990FX Mobo
AMD FX 8350, 8 core processor
850 EVO 500Gb Sata III SSD
24 Gb of 1866Mhz DDR3 Ram
Sapphire Radeon Nitro R9 Fury 4Gb Graphics card
950 Watt PSU
Asus 24x DVD-RW CD Rom
28' Samsung Monitor

I know my motherboard and PSU will run another graphics card in SLI or crossfire mode with an SLI / Crossfire bridge. Which I have two of.
The Sapphire Radeon Nitro R9 Fury 4Gb card I have, says it's Crossfire ready. But doesn't seam to have a SLI / Crossfire connection for an SLI / Crossfire Bridge. So I'm wondering how 2 run in Crossfire and will they on my motherboard ?

Crossfire doesn't use bridges anymore.Crossfire is handled by the motherboard internally. I would not crossfire R9 Fury's with a FX 8350 cpu. I suspect that cpu would be a major bottleneck with those 2 cards. Also the heat coming out of your case with those 2 cards would be like an oven. I believe those cards are rated at 275 or 300 watts a piece.

But if he's got the GPUs on hand, there's no harm in trying!

As long as the power supply is good. There isn't a model listed and the system would be pushing 700W stock, a lot more overclocked, and the 950W unit doesn't necessarily have the capabilities to handle that.

Dude should be fine with a 950 watt PSU, just make sure you increase cpu-nb and ht ref to compensate

I just wanna point out that you listed an ITX board with a single x16 slot. Were you still wanting to Xfire these with that new hardware?

Those cards should be sweet in crossfire, but too bad you have to pay the mining tax!

Post some benchmarks once you get the 1700x and the crossfire going! Eager to see the results...

Totally changed my mind and sent everything back. I did some research and came up with this and ordered it.
MSI X370 SLI Plus Motherboard
32Gb, Kingston Hyper X 2400MHz DDR4 4x8GB Ram
AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Processor with Noctua NH-D15 6 heatpipe with Dual NF-A15 140mm fans with AM4 socket upgrade.

I haven't ordered the CPU yet but kept cost down pretty good with Amazon.com $278.86 as of now. $349.00 for CPU.
