ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I move every 13 weeks. I want something I can grab and go with a small footprint. I occasionally get placed in some questionable places, so I don't want a $2000 dollar system walking out with someone else. I know a laptop would be more ideal, but I just can't pay laptop prices for laptop tech. Because of the mobility, I want wireless components where available.
Some final comments: I'm not married to AMD/ATI by any means, just what I found after poking around Newegg. If you can come up with a better cpu/mobo/gpu combo, I'm all ears or eyes in this case. Just like anyone else, I want to spend as little as possible while yielding the greatest results.
Oh spirits of Toms Hardware New System Build......Please impart your knowlege and advice
PSU might work well, but others will change that for you. Remember if you want CF/SLI go ahead abd buy a high watt rating model. EDIT: this PSU has only 1 PCIE power plug. 4870 needs 2 of them. 5770 only needs 1. My suggeston: take the 5770 with this PSU.
Since you have time to wait, and if you actually care about sata 3.0, usb 3.0...
Look out for this P55 Motherboard. Pricing=Don't know because not on sale yet
It has an A after P55 which means sata 3.0 and usb 3.0 support.
