I think I am going to go with one GTX 580 for my new build instead of 2 460's. Will this motherboard allow me to add another in SLI down the road with no bottleneck? And will my CPU hold back the cards, it's going to be an i5 2500k.. Thanks for the replies
1 other thing... I would suggest not going with an ASRock board as I have seen a ton of issues with those.
Thanks for the info, do you think that I would need a bigger board, instead of the micro. I'm putting all this in a full tower and was wondering if I would have room to SLI. These cards are getting huge now days. lol
Costs more right now, but if you watch it will go on sale occasionally. I'm not a big fan of the NZXT Phantom case, but if you are and that's what you have decided on, the NZXT Hale90 750 PSU has 62A on the 12V rail just like the Corsair PSU you have picked and is a nice match for the Phantom case:
Definitely like the price on the Corsair if you buy today. If not, maybe keep an eye on the NZXT PSU just in case. I picked mine up for $80 on a shell shocker deal. I have the NZXT Hale90 650W PSU (in an Azza 2000 Hurrican case). Great quiet power supplies with stellar reviews.
I would opt for a less expensive mobo and one single GPU. gtx560 ti or gtx 570 or gtx 580.
The reason I was wanting that MoBo was for the PCIe 2x 16x, 16x.. As for the cards I thought just get the cheap ones now in SLI and when the 580s drop in price I can always upgrade to that. I just can't really see paying $500+ for one card. I've read that 2 460's can out perform 1 580, right? Here is a new link for that ram I was planning on getting, I think the other link was dead. =P http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
