    Not sure why you want to crossfire with those video cards? For most users, one single better GPU far outperforms 2 mediocre older ones. If that is your GPU budget, I'd go with a GTX 770. You don't need expensive keyboard/mouse also, unless you really want them.

    Suggested replacements..

    Mouse: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AAS888S/?tag=pcpapi-20
    GPU: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ETC34NA/?tag=pcpapi-20
  2. I wanted to play with crossfire this build and see how it fairs with overclocking.

    Yes it is, It's really great if you like ecchi/comedy anime ( which I see you do since your avatar is Heaven's Lost Property :P) .

    Some other anime's that are good in that genre: Rosario + Vampire, Highschool DxD, Highschool of the Dead, Campione!, Infinite Stratos, Sekirei, and Is This a Zombie? just to name a few which came to mind.
