I'm building a new gaming pc. It'll have 2 x GTX600 (sli), Asus or MSI motherboard, 16 gb RAM, 256 GB SSD, Windows 7, 750 watt power supply.

My main question is the CPU, which of those 2 mentioned would be the best choice. i5-4670K or i7-3770K

Games will not take advantage of the cores in the I7. I5 is plenty. GTX600????

Thanks, shouldn't 2 GTX660 be good? Sorry I put 600 in question.

If you already have a 660, go sli. If you are buying all new, get a 770 - close to the performance of sli 660 and in a year or so, an sli upgrade will probably be about $200 for another 770.

What psu are you using/getting? What ram? Will you overclock?
