Hey, first post here.

I'm going to build a computer and I need help on finding a graphic cards that I will use that fits together with the rest of the build with the right PSU.
Please change my build if unnessecary things are in it such as the RAM for instance is 16gb when you dont need 16gb for gaming and stuff at all.
My focus in ALL this is to get as much FPS as possible, be able to start my computer fast and multitasking when not playing games without a secound waittime if possible :)  Change this example build to something similar that is good for the stuff that I will be doing.

Processor: Intel 3rd Generation Core i5-3570K CPU (4 x 3.40GHz, Ivy Bridge, Socket 1155, 6Mb L3 Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) Can change this

Electricity: Corsair TX650V2 Enthusiast Series 650W TX ATX/EPS 80 PLUS Bronze PSU. I can change this to higher or lower Watts.

Harddrive: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATAIII 6Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 inch Internal Hard Drive OEM. Can change this.

RAM: Corsair 16 GB Vengeance 240-pin DIMM DDR3-RAM 1600 MHz PC Memory
Can change.

Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme4 Motherboard (Socket 1155, Intel Z77, Up to 32GB DDR3, ATX, 2 x SATA3 6.0 Gb/s, Supports NVIDIA SLI and AMD CrossFireX, Premium Gold Caps)

Now im going to use my computer for gaming, multitasking and watching videos mostly. I will use the computer about 5 hours a day playing games like League of Legends and World of Warcraft.

Which graphic card should I use in order to get the best preformance? "I dont need 16gb ram for gaming so I can get 8gb instead". Fix this build I have on which things I need and dont need.

Now to the grafic cards. Budget = LOTS so gimme MANY cards that goes well together or just 1 if its better to get 1 good instead of 2 worse. "most cost effective"

I NEED AN ANSWER WITHIN 5 HOURS BEFORE I ORDER THIS SO PLEASE CHECK THIS ONE OUT THROUGHLY AND GIVE ME A GOOD ANSWER. Thanks!

PS: I SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIND THESE CARDS IN www.amazon.co.uk!!

Well any single amd card from high up in the 7000 series would do great. If you have the money to put down on a 7990 you would be set. anything below the 7800s would be better to crossfire like you said. So if you are looking under 400 dual 7750s or similar with a crossfire bridge would work, or something more hearty the 7800's and the 7900's series would be better. You may have to get a bigger psu depending which you get. But that is a fairly large range of gpus for you to pick.

I am no expert on Nvidia cards but there are only minor differences so an ati will get the job done. As for 2 lower cards vs 1 bigger card. Dual 7750's is about 300 dollars, the 7990 is 1000 but offers much, much more performance. So if you are on a budget 2 smaller cards would be better but if money isnt really an issue one bigger card is more expensive, but better overall.
7990 link http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-Radeon-7990-XT2-GDDR5/dp/B0... or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-GV-R799D5-6GD-B-Radeon...
7970: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Radeon-7970-Vapor-X-GHz-Edition... or http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-11197-06-40G-HD7970-GD...
7870 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sapphire-Radeon-PCI-Express-Gra...
and the much cheaper 7750's: http://www.amazon.co.uk/XFX-FX-775A-CGF4-Graphics-Expre...
