500w Is too low for SLI 570s. Look at a Corsair TX750 or TX850.

As for router, look at a Linksys (Cisco) E3000. Dual band simultaneous with an enhanced cpu and more ram is what you want.

And motherboard, the Asrock z68 Pro3-M cant do SLI, it only has one PCIE slot. Id suggest the Asrock z68 Extreme4 Gen3, or the Gigabyte Z68XP-UD4 or Z68XP-UD3P

i might overclock it if it is needed to have no lag
post #4 of 10
2700K and SLI 570s wont lag, even at stock. Just overclock the cpu to 4GHz and enjoy. Its already fast enough.

thanks very much smk and is it worth doing 3 lower gtx graphics cards or like 2 570s or wat im quite confused would like the 2 570s specs stack if sli
post #6 of 10
You could go with 2 AMD 6970s to save a little money, but 2 6970s or 2 570s is going to tear through every game today. Their specs dont quite stack, its more like if you had 100% performance from one 570, then adding another would give you like 165%, not 200%. It is not going to double the performance just from 2 cards, but it will increase it a lot.

Also, this is a good deal for ram, 8gb is plenty: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231460

a 10k rpm raptor isnt going to speed things up much, and large hdds are way expensive now. maybe get an external since their cheaper and wait til prices fall?

Dont get a Vertex 2, they are older and the newer SATAIII SSDs are out. Look at a Crucial M4 128GB

Just get home premium.
Corsair H80 or H100, Noctua D14, or Thermalright Silver Arrow are good coolers.
That monitor looks great.

That sound card is good to.

Id suggest looking at the Corsair Carbide 500R Case if you like a clean, sleek look, or a Cooler Master CM932 or something in the cooler master family if you like colored leds and a more gaming looking case.
