    sandybridge?like heat sink?? i just wanna try with water cooling this time..hmm, about the processor, my brother gave it to me, and its about a year purchased.. I dont have enough money to buy i7-2600k, if only I can step up my i7-930 to i7-2600k, i will definitely do that.. :D
  3. Oh ok, for your psu a corsair tx850w will be perfect :)

    I agree with amuffin, with the money you're spending i'd go with Sandy Bridge.

    As for wattage you'll need a solid PSU that's at least 850w-1000w for 2x 570's if you're planning to get a third 570 in the future then i'd pick up a 1200w unit.
