Get the answer TheBigTroll July 25, 2012 11:39:42 AM 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 BigCookie July 25, 2012 11:42:34 AM 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? TheBigTroll July 25, 2012 12:59:33 PM get 750w and you can save a couple bucks. the 670 doesnt draw that much power BigCookie July 25, 2012 1:34:35 PM 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? TheBigTroll July 25, 2012 2:22:31 PM 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 BigCookie July 25, 2012 2:56:02 PM Thanks for the responces.will go next week with your list of parts.maybe will add another 670 for sli.also will check about the power editions,as you suggested.
