Use a powered riser not a usb powered riser.


MSI GPUs are also very good.

get pci-e 16x to pci-e 16 extention cables and you shouldnt need to power them

if you try to put in a lot of cards (like 5 or more )
 you will need them because the motherboard wont be able to feed the 75 watts per pci-e slot

good luck Smiley
p.s. dont use anything usb powered ... that is asking for trouble

Why are you choosing 270 cards? 280X is the way to go or if you can find for cheap HD 7950, they are even better.

If your PSU can deliver the power, but doesn't have enough connectors, use Molex splitters to increase the number of 4 pin molex plugs and attach molex to PCI-e adaptors.

It looks a bit of a mess, but what else can you do?
