    1. Picked z77 for since you plan to go sli or crossfire.
    2. Picked 750w psu since you plan to keep it open for sli/crossfire.
    3. Picked a 7870 to catch up with budget. But you can change it to 660/660ti if your nvidia fan.
    4. picked a non-oc cpu since you don't plan to oc. But yes, you can change it to 3570k since you'll have a z77 board, to open it for ocing.
  2. Thanks for the answer, but with amazon / newegg prices that is well out of the budget that i said. I had meant the $700 to include the price of windows 7. If the sli /crossfire really isn't important it was more of an after-thought while filling out that form.
  3. You cant crossfire with the ASRock Z77 Pro3 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard either . It has a second x 16 slot but it only runs at x4 .

    AMD FX 6300 $140

    Asrock 970 Extreme4 $100

    GIGABYTE GV-R785OC-1GD Radeon HD 7850 1GB $180

    Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W $40
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371030

    Brings the price under $700
  4. Sorry botu that, didnt check that. anyway, you can get other z77 board.
