I'm using the Tx850 to run 4 5850 with mild OC, people seem to generally overestimate how much power a computer uses even with a few GPU's on it.

2x 5970 = 4x5870

"according to ATI the 5970 has a TDP of 294 Watt" (http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5970-review-test/10)

"ATI Radeon HD 5870 Has a TDP of 188W" (http://www.geeks3d.com/20090914/ati-radeon-hd-5870-has-a-tdp-of-188w/)

"according to ATI the 5850 has a TDP of 151 Watts." (http://www.guru3d.com/article/radeon-hd-5850-review-crossfire/9)

Sorry mate, your wrong there.

I use TX-850 with 2x5970, but with Sempron 140 processor. Cards work fine clocked at about 850Mhz. Stock voltage.

Running two 5970s on a TX750 with a 850/300 overclock. i7 processor, 8GB RAM. Completely stable, no problems for the last couple of weeks.
