Why not try this instead. I am using one of these and it has yet to let me down. Runs pretty cool as well.

performance: none
gaming: there rly isn't a noticeable difference as quad cores from either side wont be bottle-necking almost any game with a decent gpu anyways! but must say getting SLI on AMD is quite a bitch!

Old thread, this machine is probably built by now. And it's actually Crossfire on AMD, but you're forgiven.
