A while back I bought a 5770 video card. This was a big increase in performance, but it is too long and is blocking 3 of my 4 SATA ports on my micro ATX motherboard. I was only using 2 of the ports, so I just left one of my hard drives disconnected. I would like to resolve this now.
My plan is to center this upgrade around a new i5-750. I have heard 1156 isn't ideal for multiple video cards, but my plan for my next gfx upgrade is to go with a second 5770, which I have heard should work just fine.
The problem is that I can't really choose and I don't know what else is good in terms of layout and such. I am looking at a few and these things have 10 SATA ports and I think... do I really need all this?
I really just want to be certain that I can connect all of my existing devices, have some reasonable leeway in terms of future additions and be able to overclock.
