  2. I would upgrade the processor too if you want to SLI/Crossfire, it's too outdated and it'll most likely bottleneck any modern 2-way GPU setup.

    Hi excella1221, thank you for the suggestion, lets throw away the SLI/Crossfire plan, could you suggest me the best components to add ?

  5. Do you have a site to the store you're buying from? Newegg prices may be close to it, but item availability is another thing.
