Don't get a second GPU. Ride the 660 until it's too slow for your needs and then bump up to something faster at that point. That RAM is fine, too. You wont see any difference by moving up to 1866 or 2133 or whatever.

I partially agree on the ram, but more bling can't hurt
Is there really nothing much to gain on getting SLI?

I didn't plan on it protecting it, just saying there were a few things between the mobo and the carpet.

I don't know. It was just to get a white background instead of the black rubber on my low desk.

There is, but I maintain that SLI/CF should only be done with high end cards.

That's why I keep my stuff far away from him lol. I actually got a baby gate to put in the doorway to my office so I can keep the door open for air circulation.

Only problem is he sent it threw paypal which is okay but he did the ebay bs so I don't get the money till he receives it but I don't have $35-50 to ship it out today and he got all mad even after I told him the different ways of sending the money but he still went with the option that holds it till he receives it which is stupid. So he has to wait till I get the money to ship it which will be around Monday-Tuesday.

Lols, ebay bugs the **** out of me. It works when you need it though. I'm tempted to toss my GTX570 and tablet up there. I want to sell both and go with a 7970 of some sort.

You may not have much comfortable over clocking head room under the Hyper 212, so consider a Corsair H100 if you want to get into more than a mild over clock (anything that requires more voltage for stability).
Alright cool and yeah the hyper 212 is more than likely going to be replaced somewhere down the road.
