for the msi 670, do you happen to have the power edition gtx670 (it doesnt look like a box). the power edition is the one that i would get

Next week,when i will be shopping,i will check which they have.
P.S.- Will a 850watt PSU be enough for Two 670's and future overclocking?

get 750w and you can save a couple bucks. the 670 doesnt draw that much power

What about the CPU cooling and overclocking with the Noctua,or is it better to get a corsair h80? And a question about the motherboard,is it better to get the Asus Maximus V Formula or Gene?

noctua is better than h80 and much quieter

for the motherboard, unless you are extreme overclocking, i wouldnt get the ROG boards. id go with my suggestion of the gigabyte z77x-ud5h.

do not use a micro-atx board with a noctua heatsink. i guarantee the heatsink will cover 80% of the board
