Newegg - Rate My Build

Hello everyone, I wanted some details if my build will run every game I throw in. I don't expect 70 fps. 30-50 is enough. I researched alot about the build. The details about my build is it would be in 2-Way SLI. Well here's my build. Discuss and leave a comment if the hardware I picked up is not compatible with this one and so on. If you have any recommendation, please post here. Maybe about same price as of mine or lower. This will be a tight budget build which I expect to run better than other expensive cards.

  1. Scrap the 2 550s and go with a single card, like a 6870 or the 480 Newegg has and drop the extra money into a better monitor that monitor is crap too.
  2. I don't need a really nice monitor, just a monitor to be used when I'm going back home. I have a 32" inch monitor. 550 Ti performs much better in SLI rather than a single card, it even wipes out 6870 or 570 in gaming. Any more suggestions?
  3. The 550 is a low end card. 2 bring it up a notch, maybe. A single card will have less issues with games due to SLI not being fully implemented in every single game out there. But to each their own :)
  4. It's kind of a mid range card, I saw alot of reviews about GTX 550 Ti 1 GB FPB in SLI from Newegg and Youtube, it has the performance of a GTX 570 in playing games like Metro 2033, Crysis 2, Battlefield 3 and lots of others. If I buy a single card, I'm buying the less of the same performance out of the price I can get out of SLI'ing. I know that not all games are SLI-compatible, but there are lots of mods in different games that can make it happened. Before I even come up with a decision, I first saw how this single card in SLI.

    Here's a sample playing BF3 on ULTRA : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VojzxXzA3N4&feature=related

    So any more suggestions besides the GPU and monitor? Like the sizing of GPU doesn't fit on my casing or stuff that relates about that.
