Hey Guys,

I'm in the market for a new upgrade & will most likely buy the new parts around September/October of this year. I will be in the market for a new CPU, motherboard, RAM, PSU, & possibly an SSD (small one for the O.S. will do just fine)

So far I've liked the new Ivy Bridge I5 3570K for $229 (at Newegg) & an 8gb kit of G.Skill Sniper DDR3 1600 gaming RAM for $48.99 (at Newegg) but I need help picking out a new Z77 motherboard with at least 2 way SLI support & a new fully modular PSU to run x2 Gigabyte 560 Ti Super Overclocked cards & hopefully an SSD to add to my upgrade.

Any help from you guys would be greatly appreciated :)

If you guys think of any better RAM or different speed RAM I'd also like to hear what you think is best, but the most I'd most likely spend on this upgrade will be $650 give or take some.

My current gaming PC specs are;

Cooler Master 690 II Advanced case with a clear side panel window
Cooler Master Hyper 212 plus with duel 120mm fans for push/pull
Intel I7-860 @ 3.4 ghz
EVGA P55 SLI motherboard
8gb G.Skill Sniper gaming RAM (DDR3 1333)
X2 Gigabyte 560 Ti SOC cards in 2 way SLI
Fatal1ty 700 watt PSU (not modular)
Samsung Blu-Ray combo drive
1TB hard drive
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit (full retail version)

Thanks for the help in advance ;)
