  1. Get 2 560tis for more performance or one GTX 680 for overall compatibility.
  2. Get one GTX670 and save yourself some money.
  3. would Asus P8z77-pro be better than Gigabyte Mobo? where im goin to buy my components just GTX680 and GTX690 exists
  4. Asus and Gigabyte are both good brands. Compare the features and see what best meets your needs and then weigh the costs.
  5. i have a questions about ram modules, it seem that 1 or 2 Corsair Vengeance Modules wont fit if i use V6 GT Heatsink so i was looking for a low profile modules and i found that 2x Kingston Hyper CL9 KIT 2 XMP KHX1600C9D3K2/4GX would fit better on Mobo but im little worried about the voltage. Kingston Hyper Modules uses 1.65V and many post i have found say that has to be 1.5v or will void guarantee of CPU.
