Overclocking: Maybe

SLI or Crossfire: Yes, although I have got that sort with these mobo, both having dual x8 mode.

Your Monitor Resolution: My monitor res is 1440x900 but shouldn't be issue.

Why Are You Upgrading: I am upgrading because my system is starting to get a bit old and I want a new computer for future games and I need a faster computer for rendering images in Revit and Inventor.

Additional Comments: If you go to suggest a new mother board is has to be either ASUS, ASRock or Gigabyte.

Other specs if you need to know if you suggest new board:
* Dual x8 mode on the PCI-E x16
* Must support surround sound on board
* Must be Z77 chipset
* Must support at least 3 or better way SLI or Crossfire
* Must be ATX
* Must have dual channel memory and support 4 DIMMs at 1600 Mhz
