I was going to build a 4 video card mining rig and was looking for any suggestions to try and keep costs down?  Are ati radeons 5570 good for this idea?

Right now the best bang for the buck $/mhash wise I think is the 5830, if you can find them.

How much is 5830s?

i was planning to use some 5850s.

This account was a fraudulent account created by a girl in Melbourne, Australia. There is no point messaging this account, continue with reversing all paypal transactions.

5830= best bang for your buck (if you can get 2 you are golden)
5850-70 = awesome stuff
6950-70 = top notch
6990 (1 or more) the best you can buy right now

Get a cheap mobo if you are planing to use single cards. Get a good mobo capable of 8x/8x for crossfire.

For PSUs it depens on the cards: (quality = OCZ,CORSAIR, ANTEC)

5830 single: a quality 550W psu
5830 crossfire: a quality 600-700W psu
6950-70 singles: a quality 600-700W psu
6850-70 crossfire: a quality 800-850W psu
6990 single: a quality 800-850W psu
6990 crossfire: 1000W+ quality psu

You cant. For 2 or more card you need a mobo that support crossfire. Those mobos have 2,3,4 pcie slots.
