APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: (OCT. or Nov)
BUDGET RANGE: (e.g.: 1000) Before or after Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: (e.g.: 1900x1200 gaming, video converting)

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: (keyboard & speakers not actually needed but might get, mouse, monitor, OS)

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: (usa)

PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel / Asus /
OVERCLOCKING: No / maybe
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe later

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1200

OTHER THOUGHTS:
I am considering the below mobo, since it states its both SLI and Crossfire capable... is this correct?
I had heard that putting an ATI card in an Nvidia mobo or vice versa severely cut its performance in general, not counting no sli.

also, I am getting the cheapish radeon for now, until a dx11 nvidia card is released in the 300ish price range.
Another thought that I had was to install a raid array using 4 500gb hard drives, but I already have 2 diff size drives.

I am considering the following build, any thoughts on it?

Yeah, i am considering getting the new Radeon 5850 or 5870... I am figuring on the 5850, since its about $100 cheaper, and it plays well at 1900x1200.

Basically, you should get a better GPU now (i.e. 5850) and get that luxury keyboard later. Don't you have an old keyboard you can re-use for now?

I have looked at the Antec case, but i think i will stick with the current case, I like the looks of it better lol.

I did switch to this ram for $85 since its 1600 rated for if i ever overclock.

You can't respect you 1000 cap with that build if you still need a monitor. That'd be stupid to pay for a 1920x1200 system if you can't handle the 1920x1200 monitor haha.

lol true, but i have a 23" widescreen monitor already, this system is being built around the monitor.. it doesnt need to be capable of higher resolutions, since thats what i play at.
It also doesnt have to be exactly 1000, somewhere between 1000 and 1200. so i will probably get the radeon 5850, drop the keyboard, and get at least a 320gig hd for 50 bucks or so. I like having a small HD for installing windows and games on, with larger drives for storage.

edit - i will be xfering a 500gig usb hd, and a 1 gig sata drive to this new system.

for an i5-750, would there be a significant advantage to getting the 5870 as opposed to the 5850, or would the difference be negligible?

i know the 5850's have dx11 also , but why not go for the top XD . and to answer your question the differences arent that great but most ppl would prefer the greater just because well .....its the greater
