Additional Comments: I have a really hot room during the summer, good cooling is really important since I tend to game a lot. I'd like to be able to max all games out there and get a good FPS. I plan on using my TV as main monitor and use a second screen only for my msn, skype, dowload, browsing and other minor stuff. I'd like it if I didn't need to upgrade my computer too soon since it's a lot of money.
Right now, this is what I came up with but the 570 are kind of expensive, and I can't find much data on them and what I found doesn't seem to be worth spending an extra 100$ on. Even though I could grab a 3rd one later on.
It seems to me like the right thing to do right now would be to get 2 560 ti SOC
I would do something like this down below. It's easy enough to o/c you vid cards yourself and save some $$. Dual 560's in SLI will tear it up on a single 1920 x 1080 monitor and 750w psu like that XFX down below give you plenty of head room. Those fans I posted down below are for that 922. The 200mm goes on the side of that case, and the smaller fan on the bottom...two vid cards make for a lot of heat, and you want that fan blowing on them along with creating more airflow.
