  2. You are spending a ton on a premium motherboard and PSU then buying a mid-range GPU. You would be better off with a new ATI 5850 (which is faster than a GTX 285) for only $60 more than a 260 and you will be set for DX11 when you want it in a year or two.

    You could save $60 going with this nice EVGA E758-TR 3 way SLI/crossfire board.
