Looks pretty good, you could get this HDD to save some money and improve performance a little

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

that RAM is ok, and it is a steal, but the latencies are pretty high, see if you can get any nice combos with a set of 1333/1600 CL7.

For the money your saving on all those combo deals its a great rig!

The only thing I can see your sacrificing for combo/price is the RAM and monitor.

I only go LG

I think the samsung is a good idea, I could RAID later for the 1 TB cause it is cheap. Also, yeah the RAM was only from the amazing deal.

How about this ASRock Mobo and I5 for $304
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

And this RAM
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666)
Cas Latency 7
Timing 7-7-7-21
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I'm not sure about the mobo, first the quality and second I don't really get if I can crossfire a 5770 in the near future with that mobo.

Also, is the 5770 a good GPU for gaming atm thus no need for a crossfire or better GPU, mostly because if I do crossfire it won't be too soon.

Also, in case I do overclock what cooler should I get

No, you can't crossfire with that mobo... Yes, the 5770 is a good mid/high end gaming GPU. This RAM is cheaper, but either set is fine

Ok this is my new build.

^Your build is corrupted. What I mean by that is, the mobo will only run x16 x4, if you crossfire in the future, which will bring down the performance of your video cards. Without getting a x8 x8 mobo, then the 700W power supply is not relevant, and should be switched to a lower one.

So do you want the ability to crossfire in the future or not?

If you do here's a mATX mobo running x8 x8 + same ram only 5 dollars more.:

Oh wow I overlooked that, I think that I will switch the one I had before for the micro atx board.

I was also looking at that cpu cooler the

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

would this fit in my case?

^well everything looks great, you save $25 bucks on the psu+gpu combo, so that's not so bad. and it's a modular psu, that's pretty cheap for modular

anyways good luck on your build!
