also do you think a corsair tx 650 v2 with 53 amps on the 12 v rail would be able to handle 2 crossfire 6850's ?

You pasted the same link as the MoBo instead of the graphics card you're wanting to get. I'm going to go ahead and guess its a recent video card (At least 1.7" in width) and say no it will not fit three. I can't determine just how far apart those PCI slots are but just looking at it they look about an inch apart. Also that is not a good MoBo to have three graphics card on. If all three slots are populated, only one will be x16, one will be x8, and the last one will be x4. A graphics card in a x4 slot is not a happy card.

You should be able to use two cards just dandy on that board, but it will not hold three. To address the PSU issue, 650W is enough for xfire 6850's. Read here for more details on that: http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon...firex-review/4

That would not be my choice for a Tri-SLI or Tri-CrossFireX mobo, in fact I wouldn't even consider it. Get a full size board.

okay in the end i have chosen to pick this motherboard as it http://www.msy.com.au/product.jsp?productId=8247
has x8 and x8 PCIE slots and it has way more features than u get in the price range, the features this mobo has can be seen in a much more expensive mobo. the only question is, is ASROCK a good brand ?

also is there much of a difference between a amd quad core 640 3.0 ghz and a intel i5 2500k ? i see benchmarks and theres a huge performance but is that only because they have like a gtx 580 ? would i still see a differnce if i had a ati 6850 ?
