well the 3-way SLI is out of my budget. the 2-way on the other hand seems very possible! do you think you could link me a motherboard capable of 2 gtx 670 in SLI?

U can definitely use this one -> ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 -> ... Latest Z77...

I just build PC with this mobo and I like the BIOS, its looks like this.

Works as expected @ 4.4GHz



That is a great mobo choice for the CPU. It has good power design for OC.

For 3 displays I'd want at least two of these:

As for MoBo, this is what I'm using in my builds depending on budget, prefer the Asus because of the BIOS features, and customer service and warranty support:

$325ish - Asus P8Z77 WS - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$225ish - Asus Sabertooth - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$200ish - P8Z77V-Pro - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
$175ish - Asus P8Z77-V - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Well, get the K version. The 2600 is no good deal.
