Upgrading Help

I had to start a new thread was having trouble with the last one so here goes.

I'm looking to overclock and want to future proof. Looking for a good watercooling option. Maybe tri CrossFire sometime in the future.

These are the parts I'm interested in, but think I will wait for the reviews of the 4870x2 when it goes on sale.


Still undecided
