I'm planning to buy a new PC at the end of march. For the moment it looks like this:

 Intel Core i5-2500k;
Corsair 4GB Dual Channel Corsair DDR3 Memory for Intel Core i5 Processors

amd 6950

one of those:
Intel Core i7/i5 LGA1156 4DDR3-2200 CrossFireX/GBE/Raid/SATA3/USB3.0/7.1-CH ATX Motherboard GA-P55A-UD3

Gigabyte Intel Core i7/ Core i5/ Core i3/ LGA 1156/ Intel H57/ 4DDR3-2200+/ATI CrossFireX/ HDMI/ USB3.0/ Raid Micro ATX Motherboard GA-H57M-USB3

ASUS P8H67-M PRO/CSM LGA 1155 H67 SATA 6 GBps and USB 3.0-Supported Corporate Stable-Model Micro ATX Motherboard

an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 - Processor cooler - ( Socket 775, Socket 939, Socket 1156, Socket AM2, Socket AM2+, Socket 1366, Socket AM3 )

Hello jamaica;
Looking pretty good.

700W is more than a single HD 6970 needs.
One of the better 800~850W class monitors should be good for a system with two HD 6970s.

and which of those motherboard are best for me(I'm planning to do some overclocking, but not to much), and chipset 1155 and 1156 are compatible? can I use 1156 for i5- 2500k?

P8H67-M PRO is the only compatible motherboard there.

1156 is NOT compatible with i5-2500K which needs socket 1155.
