No reason to get 2 670s at your resolution. One GTX 670 will play games at max for 2-3 years.

I'd spend a bit more and get the 4GB. It helps in BF3 and Max Payne 3.

Why not just buy one 670 now and see if you really "need" SLI and then buy a second one. Also, the link you posted from PCpart picker is much better than the original build. I'd just recommend a better case like the Corsair 650D.

Depends on the games you're playing. If it's stuff like BF3 and MP3, then sometimes, the games spike over 2GB, so get the 4GB. If you're playing Crysis 2, Skyrim, Deus Ex, etc. then stick with the 2GB.

i dont know whats the hype about the evga ftw when it is pretty much the lowest performing aftermarket cooler solution you can get on a gtx670.

the vram helps with AA but if you turn it to max, its hard to see the diference between 4x aa and 8xaa

One is factory over clocked and one isn't. Also check out the combo's I posted up above along with that cpu cooler I just edited in that post. Anything on newegg can be found on amazon and vice versa.


Here's another card to take a look at. And like others posted on here, try one card for now. Two would be super overkill.

MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 OC 2GB GDDR5 2DVI/HDMI/DisplayPort PCI-Express Video Card N670 PE 2GD5/OC


Cases are a personal thing but I would look for a case with better cooling and it doesn't get any better than this case down below. It comes with a multi channel fan controller, LED on/off switch, 200mm side fan, dust filters, etc....
