now my question is does this look like a decent build? I skipped out on the new 5800 series vid cards cause of availability issues and waiting on price point to drop a hundred or so bucks. is the psu overkill for crossfire? do ya think that cooler will fit and give enough room for me to drop another 2x 2gig memory sticks in it down the road if needed, running all 4 sockets?
Is the 3 core processors worth screwing with to unlock them or stay with the guaranteed 4cores? any suggestions or comments are welcome.

think the native resolution of my 23inch lcd is 1440x900 and that works for me on my current system. and thx for the combo deal missed it!

A 4890 is a lot of GPU for that many pixels, you should be able to max everything out easily, my 4850 will let me play everything on high at 1280x1024, so games really wont be a challenge for this rig.
