Approximate Purchase Date: Within couple of weeks

Budget Range: Around 700-1200 dollars After KDV (KDV means +18% taxes)

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming, 3D AutoCad Modelling
Are you buying a monitor: No

Parts to Upgrade: I7-950, Zotac GTX570 AMP!, Xigmatex 1200W PSU Reusing

Do you need to buy OS: No, Still have my Windows 7 Pro Retail

Preferred Website(s) for Parts:
For CPU;
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/CPU%20-%20%C4%B0%C5%9Fle...
For Mobo;
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/Anakart/products.aspx?L2...
For GPU:

Although site is in Turkish I think what's what is understandable at left collum. (+KDV means +18% to price)

Location: Turkey, Istanbul

Parts Preferences: Intel for CPU, Graphics card can be amd if it's a less-problematic brand if not nvidia for stability

Overclocking: I want to, I just don't know how.

SLI or Crossfire: If I can afford it.

Your Monitor Resolution: 1920x1080@120hz + 1440x900@75hz for CPU & GPU usuage/temperature checking. For second monitor i'm thinking about another 1920x1080@60hz but that's for later.

Additional Comments: I have a Noise Canceling headset my pc can scream with fans if it wants. Playing TES:Skyrim, StarCraft 2, Dota 2. Modeling 3d in AutoCad 2007.

And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: Because i want to have better graphics & higher fps. And my current graphics card Zotac GTX 570 AMP! is showing around 85C while playing games and 61C at idle and some color flickering happening after somepoint. I can stop that happening with manual fan control though.
I just don't know what's bottle Necking my PC currently while playing games i check from my second monitor that my cpu is not at 100% while my gpu hits 100% everytime. If there is a option to increase graphics i like to turn it on. I know that I can't turn all of them on with current budget but hopefully I can increase quality while gaining fps. But when I do a physics test my cpu just can't handle it.

1st, you can afford SLI .... two 650 Ti Boosts are faster than a GTX 680 but are $100 cheaper than the 680.

Here's what I'd use:

Intel 3770k $347
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/cpu---islemci/intel-bx80...

Asus Z77 Sabertooth $254
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/anakart/asus-sabertooth-...

Asus 670 DCII TOP $464
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/ekran-karti/asus-gtx670-...

That totals $1,065 = 18% or $1257 so that's a budget killer. To squeeze into ya budget .....

Intel 3770k $347
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/cpu---islemci/intel-bx80...

ASUS P8Z77-V LK - your site doesn't have this board but here in US it's the same price as the LX and that costs $127 on your site

That leaves me about $373 for GFX card

Asus GTX 660 Ti DCII TOP $337
http://www.vatanbilgisayar.com/ekran-karti/asus-gtx660-...

Total = $811 + 18% = $957

Getting the 670 instead of the 660 Ti would be $1,107

Getting two 650 Ti Boosts would be nice for gaming but ya site doesn't list em

I was at work just got to read it and people didn't rebate about my payment so It seems my budget has been increased. Currently i'm looking at Asus GTX Titan and thinking what goes good with it?
I was thinking about your recommendation Asus Z77 Sabertooth , Can I use this Motherboard to make a Sata 3 SSD raid? My current one Asus Rampage III formula has Marvell Sata 3 controller on it and it can't even handle single sata 3 speed because of it's 5.0Gbps pxi-e bandwith. Is there a motherboard which just has Native Sata 3 controller(I hope native is the right way to tell it)?
And Last one is CPU again which can also change the motherboard I'm going to get. Should i get 2011 Socket for Titan or 1155 is enough? I7 3770K or I5 3570K . Which one i should get so CPU doesn't bottleneck?

And is Titan good for 2 monitors? Autocad/Games is only in 1st monitor, 2nd one is for temperatures, websites and DvD's occasionally, those kind of desktop window applications.
This Preview doesn't show but Items are links.*

I finaly remembered what I was going to so Edit:
I could go for SLI at this price range now, but I fear that it will give an error or I won't be able to make it work so I'm realy thinking to stick to 1 video card at the moment. I made a Xfire before with 2x HIS 4890 Turbo cards and it realy didn't matter much or I guess I did something wrong.
And there are some games that won't see 2nd video card which will actualy hurt me if I am not mistaken.

Although i'm looking at Titan, I have been reading the benchmark in HERE and as it seems that 690 is destroying it at 1080p, but i have a second monitor even though it's only for desktop applications it's still increasing the work.

So since 690 and Titan are close to each other with less then 100$ now I started to think about 680. It's almost the half the price of both of them. So what do you guys think? I also saw that couple of new laptop models have 700 series of nvidia cards should I wait for 700 series to hit the desktops as well?

Edit: Will driver updates realy effect the performance results?
