Hello and welcome to OCN!

If you want the best performance at that pricepoint, I think this will suit you great:

Asus DVD+ RW Drive:$18

Rosewill Challenger Black Case: $55

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB: $40

Gigabyte GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 Motherboard: $135

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870: $210

Antec TruePower New 650W PSU: $80

Team Xtreem Dark 1600MHz DDR3 RAM: $45

AMD Phenom II X4 955BE: $140

Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Cooler: $30

Subtotal: $753
Total: $762

With this you'll be able to play all modern games in high settings easily and be able to CrossFire. At this price range, you're much better going the AMD route. At $1000, Intel is better.

If you must absolutely go SLI/NVIDIA, then change this:

Motherboard for MSI NF-750-G55 AM3:$100

Video Card for EVGA GTX 560 Ti: $250

Total with change: $770

With that mobo, you'll be able to do SLI.
