750w is what you want to power dual 560's.

PCI-E 3.0 boards down below.

ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 Motherboard

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... $209.00
ASRock Z68 Extreme4 Gen3 Motherboard

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... $319.00
ASRock Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 Motherboard

http://www.asrock.com/mb/index.asp?s=1155 <---- the boards that say Gen3 have the PCI-E 3.0 slots

If you have a budget the size of yours, then spend a few dollars on a h/s

might grab this psu instead

and the msi board is gen3 pcie. i havent found them on any websites yet though.
AND on the cooler, thanks, might get that, or might go a bit higher, whats the next best cooler for like a 4.6ghz oc?

Thermaltake Frio for a few dollars more, or if you can find it...the Scythe Mugen 3. Otherwise your going to spend a small fortune.

All those Gen3 boards I linked up above all have the PCI-E 3.0 slots.

Thanks, but the AsRock boards only have 1 pcie gen 3 slot, and the msi board has to as well as 1 more pcie gen 2, i may got to a 3 way card setup down the track.

I'm not sure how you got that. For example if you click the link to that extreme3 gen3 board to pccasegear and read the specs it says right on there: 2 x PCI-Express 3.0 next to "Slots".
