Hi everyone,

I need some help in setting up a good gaming system. I'll mainly be using it for games and music. I'm planning on using cyberpower pc and came up with this. I'm not really 100% sure as to what I'll be needing, though I've heard how in many cases 2 video cards are better than 1, etc. Also, will overclocking be necessary/what will the advantages be of doing so?

I've been looking at the Mega Special IV, and below is a list of the base computer with the extras I need (Monitor, Windows 7, MS Office, etc.). I'd like to max out at $2100 or $2200 give or take - any help on what I could add to make a better gaming comp would be great. Thanks a lot for the help!
