The green series hard drives are not meant for performance, if you want 1tb I would switch it out to a black series or go for a smaller drive.

Your monitor is nice, but the 5770 will not be able to play on high settings if you play newer games.

You want to get the 125w processor, its newer and uses less power. If you can't get a 125 965 then get the 955 125w its only .2ghz slower and $20 cheaper. You probably should get the 955 anyways.
1333 speed ram with smaller number timings is faster than 1600 9.
That PSU is overkill. Get a Corsair 650w and you'll be set for crossfire.
Get a SPinpoint f3 1tb HDD, its faster and cheaper.
Dell monitors are overpriced. Here is a very nice Asus 24" for more than $100 cheaper(no tax), Don't mistake Asus for only making computer parts, they make nice monitors

About the 5770, It can play most games med-high settings but can be overclocked more than enough to play high settings. It is definatley enough for 1080, I have one on a 24".

10x Sonic-Boom ,Kapanci & Cory1234.

I would definitely going to take the Spinpoints, any recommending on specific model?
regarding the PSU the CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX is on sale and i what a quiet and cool comp.

I don't get the your comment on the memory. should I pick a different one?
the G.SKILL is relative cheap and compatible with the MoBo.

thank, :bounce:
