Yes and no.

The board does support SLI, and GTX 460's run cool.

Socket 1156 has a lot more motherboards and cpu's to choose from over the i7 920-1366 socket.It was released as there mainstream computer socket.1366 was more geared towards the server market.

A rig like mine would be a great gaming pc for you.

For CPU cooling remember to check out this post again.

For the i5 750/760, almost anyone can get 3.8-4.0GHz. Once you do some reading and learn what you should be doing it should be easy.

my friend is saying that if i got two 460s, i would probably need a bigger psu to be safe. i think i am going to go with one 470 for now, it will save me some money too. i just looked at getting one 480 but it is really expensive, and although it beats the 470, it is not better in almost any comparisons with two 460s

Your friend is wrong about PSU's. Here's a little guide.

The GPU decision is on you. You won't be disappointed either way.

oh, okey doke. thank you for that. i have another important question though. with that heat sink you sent me, do i have to attach fans directly to the heat sink? or are the ones you listed just for the case to help move the heat around? does the Venomous X have fans attached to it is what i mean?

The Yate Loon fan I posted is for the heatsink. The heatsink comes with clips for it. The Megahalems comes with two pair of clips for two fans in push-pull, but I'm not sure if the VenX comes with more than 1 set.

oooooh, ok so both of those Yate Loon's have to go on the heatsink? I guess I'll get the Megahalems since 2 fans is obviously better than one? Does newegg carry those Yate Loon fans? I am also going to get a few extra case fans as well anyway.

Edit: Both of those heatsinks you sent me come with two sets of clips, and they both have combo deals that come with 120mm fans? Does it matter which 120mm fan I get than? Are the Yate Loon ones you sent me better or something?

You should order all of your fans from Petra's.

For case fans, these.

For heatsink, these.

The Yate Loon's are better. But since there is no additional charge for the heatsink/fan combo on Ewiz, get one of those fans and use it for a case fan. Use Yate's for your heatsink though.
