yea ive been looking into that lately since thats pretty much the same response i keep getting from everyone... and i do plan on overclocking but for now i just want to build the thing.. dont know anything about overclocking and im most likely gonna use crossfire so tell me what you guys think.

like i said im not overclocking or using crossfire yet but plan to so if something doesnt look like its compatible let me know, this is my first ever build and i most likely looked over something.. - Once You Know, You Newegg
