    The only problem i see with your solution is the the PNY GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card cannot crossfire. Maybe you can suggest a MOBO and Processor to support SLI instead? BTW i was looking ~$400. going over right now is fine. just not too much.

    if you want to sli this 760 in the future, a system equipped with 990fx will be a good option,..
