Thanks for the info! I'm just wondering what would be better for overclocking when using 12GB of ram. From my past experience when overclocking I would go with 3x4 rather than 2x6 to avoid issues with multiple sticks of ram. Does this still apply today? Less sticks, less potential timing issues?
Will I find a 12GB set of ram that will overclock as well as 6GB of ram? I don't build a rig very often so I'm trying to maximize life without throwing out ram and starting over in a year or two from now.
Also, what size PSU would be good if I plan to run 2 x GTX470s?
I never put two cards in a SLI configuration, this will be my first. I assume that I need the bridge cable? If I put the cards in slot 1 and slot 3, does the cable reach just fine?
Thanks again for the help, once I narrow down these last few things, the cash register will ring over at Newegg
