I don't want to have i7 2500k , but what you think about SLI? do u think, is it really oevrkill to have 580 gtx? or do you think, i should save my 400 euro instead of SLI, and spent it on another part?

Also , about the motherboard, do you think should i get gigabyte z68 ud4 ? or asus z68 deluxe model? and why?

I would suggest a different model GTX580 for SLi because your top card is going to be blowing directly into your bottom one if you buy those. You should get one of the reference models that exhaust out the back of the case.

Make sure you have enough room for the case. It's pretty big.

I have basically the same exact setup and it is a pretty good machine. I haven't played too many games on it but battlefield bad company 2 on high runs around 200fps and WoW runs at 130-230 on average unless in a really busy place which drops to about 40-90.

I have a gigabyte z68x-ud7-b3 and my second card didn't want to line up on the HAF X quite right. It lines up enough to get the top screw in but the bottom was just off center which wouldn't allow me to put a screw in there.
