  1. get a bit more psu like 750W for sli
  2. Consider the new Nvidia GTX 660ti. Same price but benchmarks show it is stronger than the HD 7870 (although you are getting the OC'd version so I don't know how that changes the scores). Worth considering though.
  3. Also, I just got this motherboard:

    It's also Ivy Bridge compatible, and has everything I need at least. Saves you $45.

    The 660ti is not better than the 7870.
