    I know it's best to use two of the exact same cards and I probably will do this, but I was wondering if 1. Could I use an MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G and a MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G Gold Edition? They are basically the same card. Here is a comparison between the two. http://www.msi.com/comparison/vga

    2. I was wondering if my Corsair HX 850w PSU will have enough juice for them. I might overclock some. I'll be getting a i7 5820k (6-core CPU) with 16GB of DDR4 RAM. MSI X99S SLI Plus mobo and of course two GTX 970's. I'll also get the CM Hyper 212 EVO HSF as well. I have a WD 1TB 7200 RPM HDD and I'll be getting a Micron MX550 256GB SSD. I'll just get another MSI 970 like the one I have now, if the other is a problem. I have an Optiarc DVD-RW burner, but might get BR burner. I think my Corsair HX 850 watt PSU is enough, but I want to make sure. Also using a CM HAF 922 case, might upgrade to the 932. I currently have Windows 7HP x64.

    Thanks in advance!
