They'll work fine together.

But do you really need 1000W PSU?

Maybe get a better quality lower wattage PSU.

Well even if you Crossfire on that motherboard you can happily use a high quality 700W PSU.

HD 5770's are pretty efficient and won't draw more than 110W max. So 220W absolute maximum for the GPU's then 130W for the CPU...

You'll be good with a high quality 600W-750W PSU which you will not load at all and will give you room for GPU upgrades in the future.

EDIT: Peeps run 550W PSU's in XFire.
