  1. DO NOT get the Rosewill PSU. They are LOW-MID QUALITY. Get a Corsair 650TX. Remember W != quality. Get a good PSU from a reputable manufacture like Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, Antec, OCZ.

    Case: Antec 900 (gotta love that case ;) )

    RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227365
    OCZ 3*2GB DDR3 1600
    $100 before MIR.

    CrossFire board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128378
  2. I would suggest the Corsair 650W PSU over the one you have listed. Shadow beat me to it. :)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005&Tpk=corsair%20650w
  3. OCZ Gold 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G16004GK - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227316

    Or

    OCZ Platinum AMD Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3P1600LVAM4GK - Retail
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820227447

    The platinum has lower voltage and tighter timings, the ram mentioned by shadow is designed for triple channel i7 setups, these two are dual channel kits.

    Just to to let you know the 940 CPU you have listed will not plug into a GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 Motherboard.

    But the new AMD 550 PHENOM II X2 or the 955 X4 CPU will work in the GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

    Or the AMD PHENOM II X4 940 BLACK EDITION QUAD You have listed Will Work with this Motherboard

    He is right the phenom 2 x4 940 is only am2+ compatible
  6. ^He's right.
  7. get the antec 300 or antec 900 (depends what you like)

    for the PSU get one from PC P&C

    for the ram this will do fine: OCZ Platinum AM3 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666C7 1333MHz

    Introduction:
    When it comes to overclocking, one requires only the best components, including processors, memory and, of course, motherboards. With motherboards, there are so many chipsets to choose from that a lot of trial and error comes into play when picking the correct one for you. As an enthusiast, I push the limits of my hardware to squeeze every bit of juice out of them that I can. When it comes to AMD processors, such as the Phenom II X4 955, I found the AMD 790FX/SB750 chipset to be the most stable for achieving high overclocks. One manufacturer has taken a proven enthusiast platform and designed a board around the 790FX/SB750 chipset for those yearning high benchmarks, such as our readers at OCC.

    ASUS has had a sub-brand called the Republic of Gamers for some time now and designs its products to be the finest products available to gamers, according to ASUS. Its line includes both motherboard and video cards that are built to be the best. One of the series aimed at AMD users from ASUS is the ROG Crosshair series, which traditionally were built using nVidia chipsets. However, for the third board in the series, ASUS opted for the 790FX chispet with its proven stability and speed. The Crosshair III Formula also adds special features that set it apart from other 790FX based boards, which we will see inside.
