He told me that i could use up to 8 but he didn't recommend that.
I will pay 3500$ for this config, What do you guys think??? Is it worth it??

Should ask about Litecoin in altcoins section

Just get PC with top of the range PSU, Xfire motherboard and shove as many 7990s in it as you can. I wouldn't bother with 7950s they're crap!

At this point $/kh/s the 7950 is actually the best scrypt mining card.  At around $300 for 650+kh/s they are tough to beat.

And OP yes IMO that is quite over priced.  You could probably source those part online for about half what he is charging you.

Edit: ugh I don't like single fan cards, I have a Radeon ref design 7950 and it runs way hotter than my dual X 7950's and 7970.  Actually I burnt out my first ref 7950 had to RMA it, I'm assuming when OC'ing it I cooked the poor bastard.  Luckily for me it was inside the 30 days and I returned it to the place of purchase for an immediate replacement.  If I was outside that 30 days I would have had to RMA it back to Sapphire and while I'm sure it would have been taken care of it certainly would have been a PITA.  So now I don't OC the replacement card and it runs cooler but also barely breaks 600 kh/s but has been stable and running for me for months now.
