like it says, im brand new at this. after a while of reading guides and such i think im starting to understand things. just looking to see if im heading in the right direction and avoid stupid mistakes. thanks in advance. heres my first draft:
which is cheaper and should overclock better. It's a great board that will allow you to crossfire that 4850. If you don't plan to overclock then you may want to get this 790X based board instead for about $20 less
