This is my first time building a rig, so please bear with me. I'm actually building two computers (one will be for my bro).
I have chosen to buy two of the same GPUs (MSI TF3 560 ti's) for each rig so that in the future, one of us can take advantage of SLI and the other can get a single GPU that is up to par with 2x 560 ti's.
I need helping choosing a mother board & power supply for each of the two computers.
GPU: 560 ti -> 2x
GPU: 560 ti -> will upgrade in the future
I have these components (optical drive, CPU, GPU, RAM, and HDD) in my shopping cart and the total comes out to about $600. I want to spend $100~ on a case, so right now I'm sitting at $700~ for a single incomplete build.
Multiply by two and we're at $1400. Our budget is <$2400, which leaves us about $1000 to spend.
So basically, need advice on
-which mobo to efficiently run 2x 560 ti's & what PSU would be best
-which mobo to run a single 560 ti and later a single, more advanced GPU & what PSU would be best
-if I should upgrade any of the other components or include anything else (ie: aftermarket cooling).
For the SLI computer, I was thinking of getting
CORSAIR Professional Series HX750 (CMPSU-750HX) 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS SILVER Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply -- $110 after MIR.
but I am not sure if 750W will be enough?
Any help is appreciated
