hey guys. waiting until my parts get in the mail tomorrow, and looking for some advice.
my computer will be for mostly gaming, surfing the internet, etc.

Want to know if my system can handle both of them being overclocked and SLI'd. Also want to know if there would be any point to overclocking them and SLI'ing them since main purpose would be as such, and would just be massive overkill. Dont mind waiting until wouldn't be extreme overkill and new products and such have come out to overclock them. Do plan on SLI'ing though i think.


Build:

Video Card: (Using 2 of them)

Overclocking the video cards will probably not be necessary, but you could get away with SLIing two 260s with 750W. I would worry more about over clocking the Processor.

You can probably push the cpu way up.
