Im on the way of building my very first gaming PC, right now im in love with this mobo...

So i want if possible to stick to it.

Obvious CPU would be the Phenom II X4 965 BE (OC3)

And i already own a Western Digital Caviar Black 750GB HD, DVD burner, mouse, keyboard and monitor...

My budget is at most $850, and i wonder if i can build something decent with that mobo and CPU.

I dont care a fairly low VCARD right now, im planning in buying 2X radeon HD 5870 (or even GTX300) in the near future as soon as i have the money for it, so im gonna need a good case (good airflow and room over how cool it looks) and a nice stable PSU.

All i need right now is a pretty stable working PC with lot of upgrading potential.
