I am trying to build a new gaming system based around the video cards i already have. I already purchased 2 GeForce gtx 460 768mb video cards. I was hoping to use the new sandybridge I7 2600k processor, but in truth i don't know what combination of parts would be best. I am also trying to keep the total cost around 1000 bucks. I already spent 300 on the video cards so i have about 700 left. Thanks

Do you need to include the O/S (Windows) or do you already have it ? And is a monitor included in that budget or do you have one already ?

Yeah i definitely should have clarified that. I dont need an OS, i already have windows 7 through the university, and i already have the tower and monitor. So i have about 700 more to spend and the video cards, tower, OS, and monitor i already have. Thanks.
