Off topic a bit was either going to do that or get 1 gtx 480 and a i7-980x. Want the most bang for my buck as we all do!, so I think that might leave the cpu out! lol..
Your CPU is fine I wouldnt drop $1k on the 6 core right now, nothing will even use it and by the time games do there will be cheaper more overclockable versions available. A 1KW PC Power and Cooling should be fine. Dude, how are you are talking about Bang for your buck and GTX 480 SLI in the same post ?? - lmao.
