Thank you for the move and I will research some other coolers. Also can anyone fill me in if either of those two motherboards are good for sli and ocing?

Major update since I decided I will be upping my budget I have found another set of graphics cards that I think will be better than the 560's. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102945 They do break the budget just a little but I'm willing to spend it if it will be better since I think I can unlock them to 6970's. Will changing from the 560 ti's to the 6950's give more performance?

Pretty sure those cards will not unlock, but the performance difference between the 6950 and 6970 at stock clocks is small.

So will it be worth it to change from the 560 ti's to the 6950's?

Either tandem will be amazing. Good to go either way, tyler. As for motherboard I linked you to a good open box one since you don't seem to mind open box.

Yes but that board will break my budget by a good amount. I'm looking for a good board that's close to the cost of the one I have currently I was thinking of this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128502 . But as I said before I don't know allot about motherboards so I'm unsure if it is what i need or not.

Ok jagz I've looked into both boards, and it looks like the one you showed me is the better one and I'm going to go with that. Now I'm pretty much done with all the parts now I'm just wondering if my hard drive is good, and if I need any extra fans or anything?
