can see the part list, use export, then chose bbcode and paste.

also it would be better to sell the laptop first incase you might not get the price you want from selling it then plan on a build.
some good combos might come along during that time

Your build is solid.

SPend a little more on the motherboard for a second PCI-e x 16 slot that can run in x8 mode for Crossfire..

Just a real quick look:

1. Windows ?
2. Pls consider an SSD. It's the best thing since sliced bread. I'd go for 240 / 256 GB by Samsung or Crucial
3. CPU cooler u have is great, but the Coolermaster 212 / 212 Evo is more than enough for most folks and will save you a good $50 you could put toward an SSD.

Good Luck !!

That boards actually cheaper and can Crossfire later if you ever want to. ALthough you would need a more powerful PSU then.

SamiSC has a solid build too. But I would get the Gigabyte above instad of the MSI.
