  1. It should support it. As long as your other components can keep up with the configuration. CPU for example.
  2. Best answer
    Yes it will support them without any problem, but you'll get bottlenecked by the CPU. All Phenoms and FXs don't catch up with CF/SLI Scaling.

    Thank you. I have already OCed my 965BE. I think it should be close enough. Later I will switch to 2500k or so
  4. Good for you then.

  6. As much as I love AMD, ilysaml is right. Don't get the second 7870 until you get a 2500k because you'll see a huge bottleneck. Even with a good overclock the architecture has some trouble keeping up with both GPU's and you'll more often than not see your GPU's not fully loaded when gaming.
  7. would either a Asus P8Z68-V LXG or a Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3 be capable too?
  8. They should be a good motherboard.
