Hi all, Ive been researching this for a couple days and i think i have a decent setup, but im not sure about compatibility between the parts, and any tips on alternate parts/additional parts would be appreciated. Im also curious if this PSU is going to be enough juice. The plan is to use this system for making/viewing blu ray backups on my 1080 lcd, and adding a 5770 video card when it comes on sale.

that should be enough for a psu, so dont worry , and oh it's a quality one too great!
So for only viewing BLu-Ray you dont need that powerful system not even near, but if you want to be future proof it's great , BUt if you choose a BIT more expensive crossfire motherboard you can later, if you want to play games later when your computer is getting just little slow you could add a 5770 but if you want too game right now and mostly watch movies it's a great mobo.

Thanks for the reply! I think im going to stick with just the 1 5770 at this point with the 785 mobo, the upgrade kind of kills my budget. The 5770 is a pretty serious gpu though right? I really want to play some of the newer FPS games, and would like them to run well on my 40" hd lcd.

The 5770 is a fairly strong GPU. It can play most games at nearly max settings (AA off) at 1920x1080.
