Just wondering if anyone can give me any last improvements? :)
Oh and would anyone know a different similar price motherboard that supports overclock and sli?
Is this power supply enough for sli on two gtx 560ti's?
And do I need to buy anything else for cooling?

Hi there, welcome to the forums.

First things first, get a better PSU! A Corsair 750TX, or Antec Earthwatts 750w would be good choices. Basically any 750w PSU from a quality brand will do the trick.

Next, your mobo is not SLI capable. Get one like this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128502

CPU is good. (get a good heatsink like the Hyper 212+ so you can overclock that bad boy)

For an HDD I would suggest a Samsung Spinpoint F3 over a Caviar Blue. They are cheaper/faster/better.

That's it! Have fun :)

I would just like to add that the case you got only comes with 2 fans 1 x 120mm and 1x 140mm.. I would suggest spending the extra $10 and getting the Antec 300 Illusion case. Reason being is for $10 more you get a an extra 140mm fan stock and you get lights (which i like but if u dont then ignore this :D )..

Anyway the other option and what i would recommend with either case if you intend to OC i would get atleast 2 more fans

This pic has 6950s which is 11" I believe and the 560ti is around 9.5." Longer cards will can fit as will, they will just go into the hdd cage a little.

BTW nividia = sli, amd = crossfire. And I noticed you don't have an aftermarket cooler. You might want to get the hyper 212+ for $30.
