Hello,
I have a 2600 cpu. Will it be good enough to run 670s without any problems?

You mean i7-2600? If so, it will be more than enough.

You shouldn't need to OC, the i7-2600 is more than capable of handling a 670 SLI :)

as others said,2600 is a very capable cpu and will handle your 670 SLi setup well.

Also i highly suggest you pick your 670's wisely not all are on the same level i would be all over that Asus 670 TOP for its high factory overclock, improved cooler,heavily modified PCB, with an efficient VRM design to produce low temperatures, improved voltage regulation circuitry, much better ChiL controller , specially binned chip and voltage control and monitoring support that you won't find on most other non-reference cards. It looks aggressive to me and indeed is quite a monster let's keep it on the real not only does it violently murder most of AMD cards period it does it without even breaking a sweat most cards bow down or wish they had legs so they could run in fear when 670 TOP enters the room all bets are off. :o 

Uploaded with ImageShack.us TechPoweUp gives the 670 TOP an 10.0 rating, the only 10.0 rating ever

Overall the ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU II is the best card I ever tested.I simply can't find anything wrong with it. P.S. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Djj7jW6ny2M&feature=rela... they should of made the song for the TOP fit's it to a tee lol.

I already have a EVGA 670 FTW. Would it be a good idea to get a ASUS GTX 670 Direct CU II as my second card? or just get another 670 FTW?

In that case it wouldn't be a good idea imo also Asus Top is a dual slot card it would be compatible depending on your mobo just personally i wouldn't do it the evga ftw is not on it's level it's a great card don't get me wrong i assume the EVGA 670 FTW is not to far behind the TOP but also it would look funky with mixed matched cards imo lol.

IMHO, I would keep the two cards the same, no conflicts and good card to begin with.

Yep get another EVGA 670 FTW like i mentioned it would be possible but Asus Top is a triple slot card it would be compatible depending on your mobo just personally wouldn't mix and match the two in a sli setup i think it would also look horrible lol just my thoughts it's up to you but my vote goes to getting another EVGA 670 FTW

If you don't have the CPU yet, it would be better to get i5-2500k/3570k instead, you could save some money and those beasts perform better than locked i7 CPU. If you have i7-2600, however, then it's fine :) . It will be more than enough for SLI GTX 670s.

Oh yes...it would look very...awkward :lol: 

I think you know from the thread I was in with you earlier that I'm a man of looks...I personally find two reference cards in SLI look sick :lol:

I'm pretty sure the 670 version of TOP is only a dual slot...but regardless go with EVGA FTW+ I have one, and while they are a tad loud, they are otherwise fantastic.

#2-Gigabyte windforce x3
#3-EVGA FTW.

Tigerdirect still has a few but still he already has a EVGA FTW so don't you think he be best getting the same one for his setup at least for the sake of looks :lol:

I don't either but he wants sli 670's he was just concerned if he would bottleneck though he didn't make all this clear in his org. post about already having a 670 :na:  :lol:
