What I meant was an open boxed item at that price, not necessarily the type of board.

I see the SLI support after re-examining the page. It didn't have it in the header description and I just did a quick scan as I was pressed for time. I think I'm going to go with that board.

It's on it's way.

Should I spend the extra $10 and get the i5 4590 over the 4460?

Well then if that's the case should I spend 30 and just jump to the 4690? I'm willing to spend up to 230 if the performance is worth the price difference.

I was able to find a 4690k for 200 so I went ahead and purchased it.

Good deal. Not so much the performance, but later on if you need to OC you can. Right now you'll be able to tackle anything stock with ease.

What PSU do you have to power this?

I was waiting to see what parts I ended up with so I could add up the wattage and buy accordingly.
