That RAM is meant for an X58 board. You want something like 2x2 gigs of DDR3. Otherwise it's a nice build :)

I am unsure if I should buy AMD Phenom 940 (3ghz) or AMD Phenom 955 (3,2 ghz)

AMD Phenom 940 is stable as 4,1 ghz overclocked-- 250 USD
AMD Phenom 955 is stable at 3,8 ghz overclocked-- 333 USD

But I have never overclocked a computer before, first time build, so I rlly need help to overclock it.

Btw, anyone got some rlly good suggestions on RAM?
And the video cards is good enough?

^ those overclocks should be 955 @ 4,2ghz and 940 @ 3,8ghz.

also the 940 only works in am2+ boards not am3 like you listed.

So everything seems fine? Would be a hell of a good gaming computer?

^ yes, however it might be a good idea to go for a single 4850 then buy one of the DX11 cards when they come out in October/November.

don't even worry about overclocking, especially if you're completely new to it. You need to first make sure that your parts are compatible and are the right socket am2, am3, am2+, etc. The video cards are fine, but I would opt for the ati 4850x2 instead of a crossfire setup. Thats just my opinion though. Also, the you have the wrong RAM, but that's been covered.

4850x2 1GB cost 83 more USD than 4850 x2. Why is it better?

Do you think 1575 USD(This with a 210 USD free since the RAM is fail here) is reasonable for this computer, with the cabinet including. Everything else I would buy seperatly after time.
