That kind of sucks. I guess the game is a beast. I guess I should get another 570 soon for SLI. Meanwhile, should I overclock from the start with one card?

Yes, that's a reasonable choice. I prefer MSI Afterburner. It comes with Kombusters which benchmarks your GPU using furmark I believe. There's also a stability test. If you OC your GPU too much, you will end up with artifacts in your games. In that case, just drop back down a little until you find the sweet spot for your GPU. Do note, that your set up will get a bit hotter.

I'm probably going to need help when overclocking. Also, first, I'll need help with building the cpu. First time and planning on using Newegg youtube videos as a guide...

You can expect the fps to drop lower in some area where more the graphics in the game are more taxing on the GPU.

~40FPS is fine, really.
Yea, considering the cost to get a few FPS more.

OCing with Afterburner is pretty easy, I myself use it. BUT OCing a GPU is a tad bit riskier than a CPU. If a CPU OC fails, the PC crashes and it resets. If a GPU OC fails, it fails pretty bad. Nothing to discourage you from doing it though. Look around to see how much others get on your exact same card before going in. :na:

Okidoki. Will OC'ing just the sandybridge improve fps?? Also, my card is "superclocked." does this mean its already overclocked?

The game is not as CPU intensive as you may think. The game relies more on your GPU. Superclocked is already overclocked but that doesn't mean you can try to overclock it a little on your own. Just don't go crazy and make a crazy bump in specs. Go with small increments at a time. Regarding overclocking your CPU, you may be able to pull a few more fps from overclocking your Sandy Bridge. The i5-2500k can be push to 4.0 easily on stock heatsink and you have an aftermarket one so go figure! :)

can anyone recommend some graphic-intense games I should play with this new rig?
