Final Checkover Before I Start Ordering

First, I want to say thanks to the ppl of the forum for all the help and information you have provided. I have learned a lot about all the components from this site. I have changed my build around quite a bit since my first post. I will start ordering parts next week and I wanted to post up my build again to make sure everything looks good.

I have this Mobo and PSU picked bc I will most likely crossfire in the future.

    Looks good as long as you are not using a monitor that has 19xx resolution. The 5770 will struggle with anything over 16XX res.

    Other then that everything looks really good.
  2. the 1st mobo/psu link took me to a tee-shirts n hats site ... WTF?
  3. Nope OSU that's one of the reasons I went with the 5770 over the 5830 was that my monitors resolution is 16xx and if I see a dip in performance down the road I can throw in another 5770 (gently of course).

    Haha Alvin are you serious? Definitely WTF!
  4. now it's a different advert.
  5. You should be good then GL with the build.
  6. Thanks OSU.

    I just read in another thread that the RAM that I have picked out isnt that good for DDR3 b/c it's CL9 and that this is much better??

  7. Yes it is alot better.

    That is usually what I suggest to people. Just make sure that when you build you go in and set the timings in Bios because they will probably not default at the rated speed.
  8. OK just wanted to make sure. It seems like it's worth $10 more dollars to me. Yea they said that in the other thread too about setting the timings and voltage in the BIOS.
