Here is what I have planned. I need help choosing either a Superclocked GTX 275 from Amazon or a Radeon 5850 for my GFX card. There is a possibility of SLI/Crossfire in the future. Please review this build and see if there are any problems. Also feel free to suggest/recommend other hardware. Thanks a lot.
