MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080

Parts Chosen:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Dvd burner

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 500w OCZ PSU
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 4GB DDR3 RAM

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Gigabyte AM3 AMD 790GX mobo
http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/ProductDetail.jsp?Product... 5770

Not sure about which case to get. I was thinking about getting it from microcenter so I can actually see it.

Also, Zipzoomfly has a 4890 for the same price as the 5770, would that be worth looking into?

Those parts are slightly pricier. Would rather not spend any more money, but thanks.
