Hello,

I'm looking to build a decent gaming system (FPS mostly) which should last me for the next 3 years without any upgrades.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: 1 month
BUDGET RANGE: 900$ After Rebates
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Gaming, Work (database related)
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: peripherals, monitor, cd/dvd
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg
OVERCLOCKING: Yes
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Yes

This is from the latest build on tom's hardware.

Processor Intel Core i5-750 $200
Motherboard ASRock P55 Extreme LGA 1156 P55 ATX Motherboard $140
RAM Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3-1333 Kit $99
Graphics Card 2 x Powercolor AX4850 Radeon HD 4850 512MB $200
Hard Drive Western Digital Caviar Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM $70
Case Antec Nine Hundred Mid-Tower $100
Power Supply Corsair TX CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V $115

Is this the best build for 900$?

I'm leaning towards buying a single graphics card right now and maybe pair it with another one in the future. Can someone please suggest a good single card which is SLI/crossfire ready?

Thanks !
