Crossfire

I am building a new computer and i want to crossfire 2 GPU's. However I also want to crossfire 2 Workstation GPU's. I have never tryed to do this but would there be any issues with this setup? I know that the AMD workstation cards use diffrent CCC.

I want to make it clear that the crossfire setups would be side by side on the same MB.

It would be two 6950's and two FirePro V7800.

It will be running on a SILVERSTONE ST1500 PSU.

There would be two crossfire setups.

FirePro V7800 = one crossfire setup

6950 = another crossfire setup

I plan on buying the Asus Crosshair Formula V Extreme when it comes out. The reason I am asking about this is my work is moving to having all of the employees to start working from home 3 to 4 days a week. All what we would come in for is for meetings with customers and when project are coming to an end. I am an assembly line designer and I need powerful GPU’s. My boss is allowing me to use my home computer to do my work from as long as Windows is installed on a separate hard drives then my home OS. Both of which is Windows 7. This move will be at mid to end of November so I have some time so I am waiting for the new bulldozer chips to come out.

To Crossfire, or not to Crossfire
I've been thinking about buying a second Radeon HD 4890 for my PC. Since I already have an ATI, going SLI would be expensive as I'd have to buy 2 graphics cards instead of one plus what would I do with my Radeon? So if I'm going multi-GPU, Crossfire is where I'm going. However, is it really worth...
