Get the MSI Twinfrozer 570, as the Asus Direct-CU 570 is a triple-slot card, preventing future SLI setups.

And again, +1 for i7-2600k. As long as you have an aftermarket CPU cooler (Hyper 212+, $25), then you can get 20%-35% more performance from this chip for a mere $10!

I have http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231416

Gskill has solid customer service. At least I haven't had any problems with them.
Oh, i was just looking at the same thing, while research i came across this second version of the same:
http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=390
It's "F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2" from your http://www.gskill.com/products.php?index=338 which is "F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR"
The only difference is the voltage of those while the first has a voltage of 1.25 and the latter is 1.5v. Does less v perform better?

No special reason and i thought PSU's between these manufacturers doesn't vary much. CM 750w psu has max o/p of 900w and eff of 85%. any opposite suggestions?
my second option is a Seasonic S12D 850 Watts. Read some good review on that.
