This build is currently 1.4k, but I was thinking about SLIing two GTX 560's, I know dual gpu setups can be a headache, and only a certain games can take advantage of the SLI tech.

I don't know what GPU to put my money into Nvidia wise, so any suggestions are up...

Also feel free to add anything in or suggest something better than whats in my list.

go with a 1155/z77 platform.assuming it's a gaming build,3570k is the best choice for cpu-

here's a good compatible board-

second,560 SLi is a dumb choice.go with a HD 7950 or GTX 670 for gpu.
remember: a single powerful gpu is better than 2x weaker gpus.
you don't need 1000w psu,a quality 750w is enough for 670 SLi and overclocking-

Thanks, it shaved 100 bucks off from the other build.

I kind of got ahead of myself when choosing the parts so, I went with a 750w Corsair psu, and a GTX 670.
