M.B : AsrOck Extreme 3
Ram : 6gig TeamGroup 2000Mhz
Cpu : Corei7 950
PSU : 1035 WATT
Monitor : 23 Inch 1080p

so can i run GTX 770 4GB SLI just fine ? or i should upgrade some of them ? ( i only want to upgrade if its necessary to do it and if i'll get 20% or more better FPS on games )

    That's going to be a killer rig. I don't see a problem, except the PSU. Check if it can deliver enough voltage on the 12V rail(s) and overall power for the 2 graphics cards.

    how to check that ?!
    and how about cpu ? because someone told me that can cause bottlenecking
  3. Well, if you can physically look at the PSU and see what model it is, a google search should be able to show you the specs of it.
    As for the cpu, it is probably nearing the end of its life cycle, but if you can overclock it you may be able to extract a bit more performance for a while. Maybe an upgrade is in order, but that would require a whole new motherboard. if the 2 gtx 770s can keep you happy, don't worry.
    Technology advances very quickly these days, with Intel releasing new cpus annually.
  4. There is a sticker on ur psu. Copy paste it here or just see the 12v column and tell what is written below 12V. It will be in amperes (A)

    Ur cpu is still good little overclock will remove the bottleneck
  5. Personally I would upgrade your ram, power supply, and monitor. These are pretty power hungry cards especially if you get the superclocked 770 cards like I have, I think they require 61 amps on single 12v rail. There's really no point in going SLI either if you don't have a 120 hertz monitor, I just purchased two of these bad boys and I think you would appreciate the bang for the buck with this....Take a look http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236313

    Plus 6 gigs of ram is barely enough, I would go with atleast 8 of some quality ram

    On paper it looks fine, a Corsair PSU delivers less amps but can still power an SLI rig.
    I'm just not sure how good the brand is. I've never heard of it before. You should be fine though.
