Good choice the 2x HD7770 in CrossFire would only be 80w TDP on each card, which is amazing, which motherboard would you use and CPU you forgot to mention - cheers! Mate...

I would say the 2600K and a Z68 motherboard should be enough if your needs are only gaming.

2x 7850 does rather good to, its up there with GTX580 SLI and leaving HD6970 CF and GTX570 SLI bite the dust.
Pricing could maybe be better on the 7850's though.

Compare my cards with others here:

For a CPU i would pick a 2500K, 2600K isnt needed for gaming.
An Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 would be a nice budget board.

can someone suggest what two 560 448 core in SLI or two 570's in dual SLI would be like? and what brand would you use

ie. Gigabyte or MSI because Im thinking of going SLI GTX560TI 448 core SLI SETUP as I have one already but can sell if anyone has better ideas?

what about 1 GTX670 OVER 1300 CUDA CORES
- BETTER THAN 2X GTX560TI 448 core SLI SETUP

ALL HELP APPRECIATED must be Nvidia to get physics in gaming. -cheers! David
