LOL at 3 GB of memory w/o a brand like Corsair or G Skill...but seriously...750 Watt power supply is WAYY too much unless if you are planning on doing Crossfire w/ a second 5850 in the future

for one, get more ram, it makes no sense to get the i7 and have it bottlenecked by 3 gigs. the psu is good, but you could go less if you dont plan on xfiring like KageRyu says, and also, what are you using this for exactly? you also might want to get something better/bigger than a micro atx board...unfortunately, unless you build this by your self, which is the best advice i can give, there isnt too much we can help with, as it would just involve you spending more money...i HIGHLY recommend learning to build, or just going around this forum. computer skills is the best thing that has happened to me, and it will save you a lot of money, get you a better computer, and make you just more skilled and valuable...
