Today when putting together my first custom build I came across the Galaxy 470 GTX for 249.99. Here is a link:

I plan on using two 470s in my build and wanted some input from anyone that has any kind of experience with these cards or similar 470s on how hard they are to setup for SLI and what kind of temps they were generating. So I guess my two main questions are these:

Any problems at all with the reference Galaxy 470 and SLI?
Any problems with heat with this setup and would I still be able to do a small OC to them?

This is my first build guys and I greatly appreciate any assistance you can provide. I am fairly new to all this and still trying to learn all the terminology. Thanks,

Here is the link to the case I bought:

I was looking at buying an OC version of the 260 originally but since cost is roughly the same I thought the 270 would be the better option.

Thanks for the help so far and any further feedback is greatly appreciated!!!!!

**** Also my PSU is the:

Listed on NVidia as recommended for 470 SLI. My biggest question is whether this reference 470 is going to be cool enough to run in SLI and be OC'd at all?

If listing the entire comp specs would help let me know!!!
