just looking for some pointers on a build I've been looking at. some questions. am i going to be ok as far as heat goes, or should i look into some upgrades. also wondering about the sli, haven't ever done it before but looking at benchmarks it seems the way to go. i have heard some things about micro-stutters from sli, and that its more trouble than its worth, so anything about that would be helpful.
this will only be the second build I've ever done and the first one was pretty basic. i mainly want to use this for gaming probably not running on more than one monitor at 1920x1080. any advice is welcomed as i am pretty new to doing this so feel free.
another thing someone might be able to give me advice on, i have no experience overclocking anything, not that im looking for a walkthrough (unless you know a link), but just wondering if it would be needed to run something like bf3 ultra settings (been seeing that its pretty intense) in 1920x1080 or if i wouldn't really need to worry about it.

or if you want just tell me its a terrible build and recommend another that will cost me around the same - i'm open to suggestion
