Additional Comments: I would just like comments on my build, I'm real OCD about cable management, and I like to have the coolest looking machine, so window and grommets on the case, if you suggest one. Also I will eventually get an HDD, but I am just going to stick with an SDD for now because frankly I am not spending $200 on a 1TB HDD, SCREW FLOODS. Tell me if any of these links are broken and I will put the correct one up.
Here is the problem i run into with a 580, i will sli in the future, and 2 580s are pricey. and I also have to upgrade the psu to accommodate for a 580. 580s are way to overpriced for the performance gain.
I don't know if I want to go with 6970 cfx or 570 sli, I hear alot about microstuttering on the amd cards, but they scale almost 100% in cfx, so is it worth it? For note, I will be getting the MSI twin frozr III editions of any of these cards.
