my specific:
Motherboard: GA-MA790XT-UD4P
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 3.2GHz Black Editon
Memory: CORSAIR 4GB DDR3 1333(TWIN3X4096-1333C9DHX)
Graphics Card: Sapphire HD5770 1GB GDDR5

Use windows xp or 2k for fastest performance. windows xp 64 was extremely fast, but be sure to use microsoft's malicious software with it. It's free; it finds trojans and fixes them instantly without having to reboot. You can also use a 32 or 64 gb ssd when the price drops. 32 gb run around $70 after rebate; 64 mb around $100 for the kingston value series. I had no trouble making a drive to drive copy with one of these using maxblast 5.

There is no bottleneck, that is a very nice computer that you have listed there. If you have more money to spend on a graphics card, i would choose the 5850 over the 5770, but the 5770 is still nice.

Thank you, well, I considered to buy a HD5850, but it cost almost twice than 5770, I would like Nvidia release its dx11 card to make AMD cut price.

I don't think that Nvidia's offerings will make AMD cut their prices, at least not right away. Nvidia's offerings seem like they are going to be very expensive, therefore AMD will sit idle with their prices.
