Thank you for the correction - I apologize for my lack of knowledge xD.
As for the eyefinity/xfire thing - I'm not really sure about eyefinity atm - it looks cool but meh, not supported by a lot of games. And I'm not going to xfire unless I notice a decrease in performance but chances are I will probably upgrade by that time - maybe. Also - which 6970 is recommended? I've never oc'd a gpu and would like to give it a shot - so - one that oc's well.

The PSU - meh, its kind of cheap and I know 700w is more than enough power to run this system - maybe I'll worry about needing more if I ever xfire. I may end up taking the PSU out of my current sig rig and changing them - but I want a modular one for some overly neat looking wire management.

And for the budget - I'm trying to keep it around a grand + or - a couple hundred. So - right now all this is sitting in my cart @ $1,231.54 shipped -$50 in rebates.

Here is a bench of the 570 VS the 6970
http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/306?vs=292

And as it looks, it is pretty neck and neck so honestly choose which you like more AMD or Nvidia

Nvidia - i would recommend either a EVGA, MSI TFIII, ASUS DCII

AMD - aint really sure (not an AMD guy)

And before you even think about going SLI/CF read about microstutter

I'm more of an amd guy - and right now amd cards perform very well along with having close to double the amount of vram as nvidia cards. I'm only going to xfire if the 6970 gets a little out of date down the road or something. Blah - I should've just left the xfire part out.

And BTW i am also new to SSD, this is my first build with one and i am completely blown awesome by how awesome they perform. You just need to adjust things so that it directs your music and documents to the F3, but other then that its amazing, but you do need to be tight about what you put on it and putting a game on it will NOT increase performance, so just keep the minimum on there, maybe photoshop or something
