Hey, I'm new here and this is my first ever build so I don't know too much about it other than having read a lot over the past couple months and having watched a friend build his desktop. Is this build ok? Any feedback is appreciated because I don't know what the best parts for my budget would be. Thanks :)  Ooh and I may try overclocking and also if it's possible in my budget I would like to have crossfire or SLI enabled for future upgrades.

550 is not enough for a good gaming pc. Try 700$ you should be alright !

Err even up to 1920 x 1080 a single HD 5850 is the best solution for the $$ IMO and for budget solution CF/SLI mobos only add up to cost so to answer your question the 770 chipset for the most part has just the one PCIex16 2.0 slot :p  Links

Unfortunately that chip+ram combo ran out after black friday so replacing we have:
