MOBO- EVGA P67 FTW 160 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813188082

Video Card- 2x MSI 560 GTX-TI twin frozr II http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127565

CPU- i7-2600K http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115070

Hard drive - OCZ Vertex 3 120GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227706

RAM - 2x4GB G.Skill Ripjax X http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231435

I already have a 850w PSU, extra hard drive for storage and CD drives etc...What do you guys think? I have a couple of other stuff in my wish list like case fans and CPU fans/heatsink and I'm shooting for around $1,200-$1,500 with the stuff listed.

For gaming there is no difference between 2500k and 2600k. Put those $100 somewhere else.

What's the difference between the two then? 2600k has 8MB L3 cache instead of 6....that doesnt make a difference?

Hyper Threading. You don't need it yet.

I'd choose this SSD over the one you have chosen because it's the fastest single drive on the market: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820148348

I have a preference for a single, powerful card over two medium-range cards. SLI doesn't scale well, it causes problems with some games, and it's generally a pain to manage and deal with.

Do you need a case and an OS?

Do you need a case and an OS?

Newegg is saying mine is 550 MB Read and 500 MB write compared to the one you posted only being 355 and 140....Do they just make those numbers up or am i missing something?

So do you think I should just bite the bullet and try to sell my 560ti and get a better card instead of just getting a second 560ti?
