Overclocking: Not necessary
SLI or Crossfire: If you think it will be worthwhile
Monitor Resolution: Currently getting a 720p monitor for free may look at 1080 in the future but that would be maximum.
Additional Comments: Main use would be for gaming but the games i tend to play aren't super demanding. Upcoming games i am wanting to play are: Diablo III, Starcraft II, Beyond Good & Evil 2, Tomb Raider, Rayman Origins. I however do not need to play at ultra if i can get high settings i will be fine, I am coming from console so most anything will be an upgrade to me.
I tend to also play alot of indie games but these will not be the limiting factor. I will also use this for emulation and would like to be able to play up to N64/Saturn era which shouldnt be an issue.
Wanting to go with a Bluray drive for ripping movies for the optical.
As mentioned i would like to stay under 600 but if you can get lower and think i will be fine for what i want go with it.
