    hello guys im so confusing i need your opinions
    ok here is i sold some stuff cuz i was have great deal same price of new one and i did it without thinking , motherboard-cpu-and the SSD, now what should i get??
    1-SSD not big problem in chose cuz there is many chooses and i think going to get revodrive 120g
    2-now the big problem motherboard and cpu that's mean hole system and this is make very confused cuz there is many chooses like (sandy bridge-waiting for X68-waiting for AMD bulldozer).
    3-i have 3 video cards now (1x Palit GTX470-2X zotac GTX460 2G), im in love with the performance with low wattage of the tow GTX460 2G in SLI and i see there is nothing better than them.
    i pick an option which is got some phenom II x3 720 with ECS 790GX and unlock it put the GTX470 and keep the 2X GTX460 2G or sell them, it's make handle games for now and wait for X68 or AMD.
    thanx for advice guys

    the cpu and mobo you picked seem like a good choice. you could sell all 3 gpus and get a pair of amd cards for CF

    hmm guys pair of 6950 mean should have high core speed, so that's mean pick high AMD setup like 1090T and that's mean waste of money for me, i sell i7 860 which most better than AMD setup

    I have to ask, why are you down-grading from a I7 to a AMD Phenom II.

    personally, I wouldn't replace a I7 rig with anything less than sandy bridge. Think about it, you would be replacing a very high-end system with a system no faster than my C2Q system. That'd be like you going back to a socket 775 rig IMHO.
