With your budget and what your looking for...don't limit all your shopping to newegg or your going to get hosed.

This build allows you to add another one of those factory over clocked gtx 560's later on for SLI.

gotta disagree with ya why_me, as my aforementioned build comes in at $784 before rebates. not exactly getting hosed. comes with an arguably better mobo and 4gb more ram too. you could argue that the gtx560 is better than the 6870, fine, my build would then total $799 and still has a better mobo and 4gb more ram, all from the delicious egg.

Question about the mobo I'm confused. I know it says it can sli but does that mean it crossfire to?
