As for the CPU cooler, my recommendation would be the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO. It's cheap for what it is ($35 on Newegg), supports your CPU socket (2011), compact, and it does the job VERY nicely.

shilka: He does have a 750w PSU already (see his intro post).

its overrated and the fans are loud

The Thermalright TRUE Spirit 120M is priced around the same area and its a better cooler

Really? The fan on it doesn't look that large, and I would imagine the GFX card fans would more then drown out any sound its producing.



Speaking of GFX Cards I realized from my original post I forgot to ask if SLI/X-fire is even the best path to go for midrange cards. Right now I'm putting about $640 into 2 cards. Would I be better off just going with a single card of that price range?

Honestly, cooling a 4930k with either a True Spirit or Hyper 212 is pretty bad and nonsensical. Those chips need far better cooling. I would invest in an AIO unit. Easier to install, easier to maintain, and they give great temperatures (and typically they aren't that much more than a high end air cooler). Anything like a Corsair H90, NZXT Kraken X40 will be adequate. But, if you are looking for better performance a Corsair H110 or NZXT Kraken X60 would be much better. If you don't have 140MM fan locations on your case then an H80i or H100i would suffice. But realistically, you don't want to be cooling a Hexacore chip like the 4930k with a low to midrange cooler like the Hyper 212 or True Spirit. You aren't going to get very high overclocks, and will be very limited because of temperatures. I'm saying like 4.2-4.4 is around where you would be limited. With an AIO unit you would be able to push 4.6-4.8GHz.

If you are putting $640 into 2 cards, there is really only one card out there that can compete with those numbers and that's a 780Ti. A single overclocked 780Ti is about as fast as two 680's in SLI. Which is still pretty darn fast. Except it's going to cost you $60 more than what you are spending. If you want to spend that extra $60 it might be worth it. Still though, two overclocked 280x's are faster than an overclocked 780Ti. If you are not worried about Crossfire troubles or AMD driver nightmare stories then the 780Ti would be well worth it. Because overclocked it will be about as fast as a 7990 or 690.
