Thanks for the help guys! I really appreciate it!
I'm waiting on my i7-3770k to come out and my build's done (other than gfx card which i've been waffling on)
but i've got:
mobo: GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 -- it's got pcie x16, x8, and x4 for SLi capabilities so i'm set there.
cpu: i7-3770k (3 more weeks!)
gfx cards: eVGA GTX 560 Ti DS SC? (1 for now, SLi in near future)
PSU: Corsair TX 850w
case: NZXT Guardian
Ram: mushkin 2x4 gb
cooler: coolermaster hyper n520 (& mx4 paste)
SSD: ocz agility 3 120gb
HDD: 1TB seagate barracuda
my goal is ~4.5ish with this setup, pretty budget friendly build i think i'm in about 5-600 so far, cpu still to be bought & graphics card too.
food for thought: since i can get that card for ~$215, is it better to grab that and SLi 2 of em (one will be free)
wait it out and run SLi'd legacy 8800 GT alphadog's (was my original plan) until 660's come around in your opinions?
