I have the following system specs picked out for a buddy. What I'm wondering is should I wait until the processor comes in stock to get the better Sandy Bridge and motherboard with 2 PCI-e slots @ 16x, in case he wants to Xfire the 7970s a year or so down the road?
-How much better gaming performance will he see from the better processor?
-How much better gaming performance will he get out of the PCI-e slots both running @ 16x on the other mobo if he decides to xfire?
-Also any potential recommendations / suggestions about the build in general?
