I am building a new computer and my mother board supports up to 4 video cards in Crossfire  or SLI mode. I am wondering if I can have 1 295x2 and 3 290x's in crossfire mode? I know this is alot, but I personally wanted to build an overkill of a computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

As far as I know, Crossfire is limited to four GPU's, and your proposed setup has five. 

So no, it won't work.

Better to find a case with enough radiator positions for two 295x2 cards, if you want to do overkill.

Reviews of 2x R9 295x2 cards (4 GPUs) showed that scaling to 4 GPUs is still terrible. You'd be better off with one R9 295x2 right now.
