I don't normally overclock but do want the option to allow it. Also want the option to possibly run CrossFireX later on.
Do you see anything wrong with my selections so far?
Money is a little tight but it looks like I have to go ahead anyway.
I just want to check with you folks first before making any additional purchases.
Thanks for any info you can provide.
