^ If you are planning to add one more HD 5770, then change the mobo...the 2nd PCIe slot operates only at x4, which would bottleneck the card...

And dont get that full covered 5770...instead get the open cooler type...It runs cooler...

PSU - I dont think you would need 750W PSU even for HD 5770 crossfire...
A quality 600W would suffice...

RAM - Cheaper than the GSkillz
Corsair

Not planning on adding a second card. I'm not a hardcore gamer, most of my games are along the lines of Rome Total War. Is that other card the exact same quality as the XFX? I get lost in the technical details. Someone else recommended Sapphire (Vapor-X model).

^ The Vapour-X model would run slightly cooler than the above specified model...
And as for quality, yes they would be as good as the XFX...XFX provides better warranty though...

As you will not be adding another card, then you wont need 750W at all IMO...
Get this Antec EA 500W - this can power any single chip graphic card out there...

And get this CPU + mobo combo - The mobo has SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0 support...
