RE: Need help on my 700$ ultimate RIG
If I'm not mistaken its x16/x4 in crossfire/SLi, so might not be a great idea to do that.

RE: Need help on my 700$ ultimate RIG
I think I came to a conclusion that I'ma get the

Gigabyte (GV-N560OC-1GI) nVidia GeForce GTX 560Ti (900MHz) 1GB (4000MHz) GDDR5 Dual Dual-Link DVI/Mini-HDMI PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card at the price of 219.99

rather than my original choice of

EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB 1024MB GDDR5 (01G-P3-1561-KR) nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Chipset 1GB DDR5 Dual Display DVI-I/Mini-HDMI PCI Express 2.0 Graphics Card at the price of 239.99

Anyone have something to say about these 2 before I make a mistake?

What would you suggest of a better mobo for my 2.5k OC?

That refers to the frequency of the core and the memory. When comparing video cards based on the same GPU (i.e. GTX 560 Ti), higher frequency means higher performance.

As for EVGA vs Gigabyte: They are pretty similar, I personally prefer the cooling system on the Gigabyte, as well as the lower price, which is why I often recommend it.

Looks like you changed your mind about overclocking. Indeed, the Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 could limit your CPU overclock.

I'd upgrade to the ASRock Z68 Extreme 3: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...6813157271 for $125

It supports CF/SLI 8x/8x for optimal performance (as opposed to 16x/4x), the next generation of Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs, PCI-Express 3.0 if you use an Ivy Bridge CPU and of course, can be overclocked a lot.

That is true, the asrock z68 E3 is good, But as of right now, I dont wanna overclock yet, Maybe in a few months or a year or so when I do, I'll purchase the Asrock E3 or maybe something better to go with the i5 2.5k.
