I would like something upgradable that will last for a few years, slightly behind the curve of the latest games.
I know the drawback with the motherboard is that it only supports Crossfire of 16x and 4x. However, I don't envisage getting a second GPU in a hurry. Will I regret this limitation in time? For £100 I can get the Asus M4A89GTD PRO/USB3. This however includes an integrated GPU: is that something to be avoided? (I was hoping for USB3 support).
The other question I would like help with is cooling. The K58 case comes with a 140mm 1000rpm intake fan and a rear 120mm 1500rpm exhaust fan near the CPU. In the ceiling of the case are two places where you can install 120mm or 140mm fans.
Should I be upgrading the included fans or adding an additional fan or fans?
Any other suggestions very welcome - I've not bought anything yet and I'm totally new to this!

Given the low power yet succulent CF scaling of the HD6k series i would really swap that single GPU slot Gigabyte 870 for the Asrock 870/880G/890GX?
