How about getting the system up and running first before worrying about overclocking it?

Looks to be a decent system and should be able to play Crysis at least in the 30fps range.

I figure at least on high with whatever resolution you use (1333x10something...).


Personally, I would go for a GTX 260. It's faster card and much better suited for a higher-end gaming rig. I'd rather have too much fire power than not enough.

Yea, there are alot of decisions that go into building computers. With all your research and questions, you should come out OK with whatever you decide on.

expanding on this topic a lil - now i bought a psu
that says "750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80PLUS Certified Active PFC PSU"
Does that mean it is meant to support both SLI & crossfire configurations? i would guess so - but a second confirmation would be awesome.
