So, I've been "building" this system for a while now, and I want to know your opinion on it!
Processor - Intel Core I7-2600K/2700k (Haven't decided yet)
PSU - Nexus PSU 1000W ATX 80+
Motherboard - ASRock Z68 EXTREME3 GEN3
SSD - Kingston SSDnow v100 64 GB
HDD - WD Caviar Green 1.5 TB
ODD - ASUS DVD -/+ RW W/ LightScribe
Ram - A-Data 4x4GB
Case - Antec Dark Fleet DF10
and the Videocards - GTX 570 1.2 GB IN SLI!
Maybe later, I'll add an another GTX 570
So, what do you think about it?

Never heard of your PSU . Better to stick to a recognized brand . Corsair , seasonic, antec , enermax , pc power and cooling .
You need 800 - 850 watts for GTX's in SLI

The 2500k is the gamer cpu . Hyperthreading wont help so the 2600k is pointless

Your SSD is too small . Windows and 2 games......... really?

Your motherboard only supports two graphics cards so trying to add a third is not just pointless from a performance stand point its also impossible without using a hammer and a casual disregard for all things electronic

I included the SSD ONLY for the windows!
I will be doing A Lot of multitasking, besides in the motherboards description, it says, that it supports quad sli!
Then what is the difference between the branded power supply?

I do not care what the description says. The model you specified has only 2 PCIe X16 slots. You can tell by looking at the pictures.

A quad SLI board will cost not less than about $300 because it needs some extra hardware not built into the chipset.

What about this one?
December 14, 2011 12:00:27 PM

No the P8Z68-v PRO will still only do 2 cards in SLI.

The cheapest board that supports more than a 2 card set-up, i think, is ASRock Extreme7 Gen3 which is priced about $270 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

For more than 2 cards in SLI, the motherboard must have something called an NF200 chip.

Not a bad choice, but you would be better off with the GEN3 version (ASRock Extreme4 Gen3).

I think, it's Gen 3, but, Does it support 3-way SLI?

See my post above ^^

The board you linked me to wasn't the GEN3 version, it was the old standard Extreme4. The Extreme4 Gen3 version is black and gold colour scheme.

I have just watched a video review, from Newegg, and Paul said, that it can run tri sli!

" - ... If you're using 2 cards, they operate 8x, 8x. If you're using three cards it will run at 8x, 8x and 4x..."

By all means wait for a second opinion, but I was fairly certain that board only supports 2 cards in SLI or 3 cards in crossfire. For 3 cards in SLI the NF200 chip was required.

As i said though, I might be wrong so await a second voice on here :)
