Hey, I am buying my computer components and I just want to be sure if everything is compatible.
Here is the list of parts;
Zalman Z11 Plus
256GB Sandisk SSD
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 SC (850mhz) with ASUS GTX 560 DCII Overclocked to 850mhz in SLI
Intel core i5 2500k
Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3
Lite-on SATA Optical Drive
Corsair vengeance 8GB 1600mhz
Corsair TX650 V2 650W PSU
With that I will also be using a wireless network adapter.

Depending on how much you are paying for your network adapter, you could buy the P8z77-V Pro for 20 more bucks and it comes with a wireless module, and more and newer features. Everything else looks okay although if this is for gaming I would try and trim cost elsewhere for the GPU, but I suppose the only place for that is on your SSD.

*Edit* Oops didn't see 2nd GPU, do you have those already? I would just buy a single new gen card at the same price point.
