Noob building a christmas gift with i5 HD5770


im from the philippines and my budget is around 40,000pesos and will be buying parts in the nearby PC shop, PC express. here is their website:

use the DEALER'S PRICELIST(cash basis) for cheaper price qoute. i dont wanna go canvassing anymore because shops that sell a little cheaper (100-200 pesos less per piece) is too far from my place and the transportation and time will cost as much.

APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this coming week or two
BUDGET RANGE: around 30,000-35000 pesos
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:gaming, surfing, doing homework, actually more of gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse,webcam, speaker, monitor , GPU ( i have the Powercolor HD5770)


PARTS PREFERENCES:) intel i5 for the CPU. Any casing will do, it doesn't need to be fancy and expensive. the less power consumption the better hehe

OVERCLOCKING: No. im a noob but will try if it is worth it

SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe, for now single card.. in the future most likely, to keep up with the game requirements

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080 hopefully

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: i want to be able to use my HD5770. energy efficient. make noise tolerable when people are sleeping

at present, my current product order is:

intel core i5-750 P10200
MSI p55-CD53 7100 (bad choice?)
500gb seagate Barracuda SATA 2550
Corsair 4gb XMS3 1333 (2ddr3x2) 6000
Silverstone ST50F 500w 3650 (can this support 2 energy efficient 5770?)
Casing -Orient Trans4mers 1550 becomes 1350 (less 200 if PSU will be upgraded)
internal fan 12omm x3 285

total 31,420

    First thing first, you don't have enough money for crossfire. The total is over budget, excluding tax & shipping. Do NOT cut corners on PSU. It's the most important part of a pc. The Corsair is one of the best and will last you a long time. Yep, you need 600W+ for Crossfiring HD 5770.

    The rest are quality stuff. Ask for Kingston ram. They have only 1 stick in stock. Grab 1. Then get another stick when they have stock. Your total would be within budget. The 3x2gb you picked out is for i7. It will work on i5, but it'd be 6 gigs. You need 64bit Windows to use more than 4 gigs. Hence, the majority of desktops & laptops are 3-4 gigs (32-bit Windows).
