  4. also another thing if i decide to go with sli 660's will 650w of power be enough even after i overclock both and if i get an i5 3570k or the 8320 and overclock it
  5. Best answer
    The GPU is really more important for gaming and the 660 is an excellent choice. But if it were me, I would go intel.
