you can only use 2 pciex16 slots (for SLI or CFX) is what he was saying and that it didnt make sense to blow money on an extra slot.
Youre wasting money on a color scheme that could be used on higher performance items is the general point
I know it's limited to the 560 itself. I'm not an idiot.
But then his post doesn't make sense because of course, it's only capable of SLI since it's nVidia and not AMD...
It DOES make sense to "blow" money on an extra PCI-E slot - if you rather want to add another smaller card than buying the latest and greatest big boy, so it makes perfect sense. Why then be given the option to do so? And you want higher performance from a non-SLI/CFX board? AFAIK there are no boards out there that has higher performans than multi-GPU motherboards.
I'm also pretty sure that the Fatal1ty supports TRI-SLI, QUAD-SLI, TRI-CFX and QUAD-CFX.

Keep the Fatal1ty so you'll keep the color scheme AND the performance.
I cannot recommend NZXT. The last few cases I've dealt with have been of very poor quality - the Phantom too. Their fans are especially not rigid at all. They break very easily. Also, when you ask them to send fans, so you can fill out the remaining slots in your case (it IS something they offer), they tell you that they will send them right away. Guess what? I've never gotten the fans. Never from one single case - including the Phantom.
So I strongly advise you to stay away from NZXT.
Cooler Master has way better airflow for budget builds anyway. The HAF 912+ has amazing cooling and airflow for the price
