ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Since I'm not one of the lucky ones who can buy parts cheaply in US, you should have in mind that things are more expensive here in Europe and we don't have such vast selection. I will be posting prices from Newegg.com, but what I need the most is evaluation of the system and what could go wrong with it.
Sorry about the lack of info for some items but I'm mainly asking if this setup looks good enough. Wouldn't 1 x16 and 1 x4 PCIe slots create a bottleneck for the 2nd video card running CrossFire?
For those who can underestand German, I was talking about this setup + another HD 4770: http://cgi.ebay.de/AMD-Phenom-II-X4-940-4GB-500GB-DVDRW...äte_PC_Systeme?hash=item23017f65d1&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A30
Thanks for the links.
I found this on eBay.co.uk which looks really sweet although without 2x HD 4770 but I can live with that. Now just need to convince them to send this baby over here to Lithuania...
in that case, here are some links for uk shopping sites, you'll have to check for international shipping though
