Compatibility check

Due to a horrible event that happened as a child...I want to do a last moment compatibility check. I know with that big cooler is will fit with the memory.

Motherboard: MSI Z77A-GD65
Cpu: I5-3570k
Cpu cooler: Noctua NH-D14
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws series X
GPU: 2 x Gtx 570
PSU: Coolermaster 1000w
Case: Azza Hurricane 2000

  1. what is your budget? what is your usage? what parts do you not need? suggest you fill out the how to ask for build advice template at the top of the forum page

    right now, there are spots that you can save money on
  2. 2x 570 will guzzle down power, and you can get 2x 7870 which is pretty much the same thing, but uses less power, and is quieter.
  3. 7850s perform like a 570. 7870 performs more like a 580
  4. 7850s perform less than a 570, not the same, but the difference isn't by much. The 7870 does perform a lot like a 580, though.

    The case, gpus and power supply I have from a previous Cyberpower computer. And yes I have put my gtx 570s on eBay. Planning on 670...?

    Edit: Well that was fast, sold them both for $380. Now I have two choices. 1)Buy 680 and have to bring 70 dollars out of my pocket, or 2)Buy 670 and also buy a razer blackwidow keyboard (yes i know it may not be the best, but i think its respectable for $60. And my current keyboard powers down when i press too hard.
