Overclocking: maybe in the future, but i'd prefer not to
SLI or Crossfire: maybe in the future
Monitor Resolution: 1080p tv and a 1080p 3d tv
Additional Comments: Just trying to build the cheapest gaming rig to play BF3 on high with over 40 fps, and Skyrim on ultra. I have a 1080p tv but am hoping to be able to play games in 3d with a 3d 1080p tv later. I'm not really sure if all these parts go together. If I can switch parts with better quality or bring the cost down around $700, I'm all ears.
No the tool kit shouldnt be needed unless you dont have tools already besides that everything looks good. If you plan to OC get a cpu cooler now as well so you dont have to put it in later Hyper 212+ is cheap and works very good.
