Not worth it. The Xeons linus used are 1/4th of an 8350. That will not be able to power even a single 750 Ti properly, let alone 2 cards

I meant, Crossfire might work, but it's not worth it. A single high end GPU will be horribly bottlenecked by the CPU's

It might work but as every other person has said, it isn't worth it, to many bottlenecks.
