if I were you, if I wanted it to last a long time I would get saving for a 780 instead of a 760 :)

Thanks for the reply, I was thinking about it but want it to be fairly cheap so I can get it quicker (on a pretty low wage). How is it?

@TheSLSAMG - Thanks for the reply, I'd rather do dual sli with a better mobo due to the upgradeability of the computer.

I forgot to mention, one thing I don't want to change is the case. Mainly because it huge and good for a first build and also because it looks awesome.

SLI isn't recommended as it doesn't scale perfectly or sometimes not at all. Single card solutions are always preferred really.

@harrynowl - thanks for the reply. Just looked up some benchmarks from the 780 and it's a pretty big improvement from the 660. However, money is a pretty big factor because I want to build this asap (I'm on minimum wage :/). Is it really worth waiting (at least 6 months, maybe more) for it?

SLI doesn't always work as flawlessly as you think. Also that case is not worth it. Try the h440 red and black version.

The MOBO SLS posted is perfectly fine with sli even though sli isn't the best thing in da world. That motherboard is only if you want OC lots...and this is your first build.
