I think you need to pull a CPU cooler and overclock that 960T if you expect if to keep up with either the HD 6970 or GTX 570.

What make / model of PSU is that 650w? Your motherboard will do SLI / CF nicely, but you may be limiting yourself with a small PSU (and maybe a less than desired brand).

It is sadly a less desired brand. I did not buy it and the person who did put it in another box and gave it to me.

I suggest you buy a good PSU. Most important part of your system.

The most important things that you need to buy is power supply (PSU) to keep your system healthy and works fine. Because a system with bad psu is like a trouble maker kids :D 
And dont forget to pick a reliable product from a major brand PSU because they wont be bothering you in the other time ;) .
Dont forget to look at 80+ gold sertificates and active PVC to get a better energy efficient and keep your monthly electricity bills low.

The second that you need is Heatsink Fan, Pick one of this :
Xigmatek HDT1284 or Cooler Master 212+
Thats a great HSF based on price/performance or something else that have better performance based on how much money that you need to spent.
Why you need This thing? To keep your system run in a cooler temperature and run in silent.

If you run your system only in 19" LCD thats vga is not a wise choose i suggest you to pick 6770..
But if play high definitions game in more than a 19" LCD, i think u need to pick 7950 or 6970 because this two things offer you better performance/energy and price/performance..

Optical is good and so on with the hard drive that you pick. Choose which one that offer longer guarantee

Okay. Thanks man. Ill look into it. And also, I don't know if I mentioned I want to be running games at High fps's on 2 monitors. Thats why I am looking at high graphics cards. Also with the 2 monitors I would like to say I would want to have one gaming and the other just on internet or teamspeak and such.
