Dont think you can do much better then MadAdmirals build. If you are not going to get a monitor in the near future you could go with an i5 build with a 5770 as well and then when you get a new monitor get a second 5770 and Xfire.
However i5 with a 5770 will be closer to the 900 mark then the 955.
Pros: For everyone with a decent AMD motherboard and not terrified of entering BIOS to adjust settings this memory delivers more then advertised. Right now it is delivering 7-8-7-18 timings set at 1.65 volts (within the memories stated operating range of 1.6-1.65 volts at a speed of 1666 Mhz. I have not tried to squeeze this memory for any higher output...yet. Another big bonus with this memory is it runs at 1.6-1.65 volts and not the 1.9-1.95 blazing hot voltage of other high performance memory.
Cons: This chip is optimized and advertised for Intell i7 so it is not surprising that AMD motherboard BIOS does not initialize this RAM properly. If memory serves the first settings I got were as 1333 speed latencies of 11 at 1.5 volts. You have to make your own adjustments in BIOS for AMD boards. This is a con for inexperienced builders not comfortable with adjusting BIOS settings. It's not a fault of the chip however, it state clearly that it is designed for the new Intel high end chips.
No, since you'll need to know how to change things in BIOS anyway. It's a fundamental part of building a PC. There are many, many tutorials and guides about the different settings and what they mean. Start reading up on it, as improper RAM settings is probably the most common issue people ask about on here (look at any thread about "freezing" or "my build's slow" or "random restarts" or the like), and can be easily remedied by learning a little bit about what your doing.
Most of the "designed for the Core i5/i7" statements are mostly just maketing anyway. I can tell you that I have very similar sticks from G.Skill that say the same thing and I didn't have to change anything in BIOS. I think it's hit or miss depending on the board and the BIOS version.
