  1. I'd go for one of these, though whether it's worth the extra $10 is up to you: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=193_1372&products_id=21635

    That motherboard won't do x8/x8 SLI/CF, and you PSU couldn't run two GPUs anyway. -3470 won't OC, so just get one of these: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=138_711_1183&products_id=21754
  2. ok thanks I switched the motherboard and I think i'll stick with the GPU
