Hello!

I've been gathering pieces for a budget of 900$~
This is what I got so far..

CPU: Intel Core i5-750
Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D-E Pro
Memory: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
Video card: SAPPHIRE 100283-2L Radeon HD 5770 1GB
Hard drive: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB

I've been looking for an ideal pc case and a power supply. I might buy another HD 5770 for xfire in the future to catch up a little with the graphics.

Also, I've been wondering if all those pieces I picked up would all fit together.
Any help is appreciated ;)

Hi Darkhiro,

Everything looks good. As regards to the case and PSU, what are you looking for in a system? What is your budget? Are you going to overclock? Are you leaning towards the quiet side or the cooling side?

As DogSnake mentioned, Antec 1200 and CP-850 PSU is a great Case/PSU combo. Antec 1200 is known for its cooling and the CP-850 should run fine with a 5770 CF.

If you could wait until early next month, Antec is coming out with its new Dark Fleet series cases and the Lanboy Air.

Another suggestion I would like to throw out there is the Antec P193 (which is my personal favorite).

Antec 850W is wayy overkill for that setup dude...

A good 650W is all you need. Even if you Xfire in the future, you'll have a lot of headroom...

I would suggest you an Antec Three hundred case which has excellent airflow and comes cheap!

And For the Power supply a Corsair 650TX would be my first choice with that system:

If you want a modular PSU then look for Corsair 650HX:
