That build looks pretty good to me, both the video cards you should get now are out of stock at a lot of places (5850, 5870)

Yeah the 58xx series on newegg is out of stock atm. Hmmmm a good alternative to 5850 would be a 4870x2 but newegg discontinued to make people buy the 58xx series. For a lower price you could go for a 4890. It's cheaper by like 100$ or so but it isn't quite as powerful as the 5850. For the price range, anything around the price of a 5850 on Nvidia side will be a lot weaker, don't consider Nvidia unless you're willing to pay a good bit of money.

Well newegg doesn't have the XFX HD-585A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5850, is there any other reputable sellers that may have it? Kinda wary of using google shopping...

I think you're gonna have to wait bro. No one is selling atm. NEVER use google store, just don't trust it. I've lost money from the wrong information I received there.

The only thing close enough in speed on the ATI side is a 4890 being sold right now. Or if you will pay a bit more, get a GTX 280 or something like that.

YOu said you won't crossfire so drop the 750watter for the 650watter, it will be more then enough for you.
