Thank You, but i would like the option of being able to overclock and sli in the future, and i dont think that build would be able to do it. I think i can stretch my budget to about $1100 if that helps. Thanks.

It can be overclocked, but the motherboard doesn't support SLI, if you need it :

Like above, get the 670 in newegg, it has a good modular psu with capacity for two 670 GTX and a motherboard that supports SLI.

Of course, that's why i listed the asus board, it supports SLI, with two pcie 3.0 running at 8x/8x.
And the psu will do for two 670 gtx, it got a recommended buy in guru 3d.
