The build will work fine for your intended use. The only suggestion I have is to maybe consider a slightly faster triple-core CPU. Here's a nice combo deal from www.newegg.ca

Here's another combo deal that might interest you:

The 770 boards make great builds when you don't need to leave the option of Crossfire open. That's a great board for the money.

ive seen a few videos of the 5770 playing CODMW2 and in some it seemed laggy? i know there alot of variables but generally speaking this card should hack threw that game no problem right?

The 5770 games pretty well at your resolution. The next logical step up would be a 5850, but that raises the price significantly.

I wouldn't get a 4870. It's only SLIGHTLY faster than the 5770 in a few benchmarks. The 5770 also uses less energy, runs cooler, is quieter, and has DX 11 support. No, DX 11 isn't "pretty far off". There are games out right now that use it.

Where are you seeing a 4870 for $89.99? Is a 1GB model? Is it new? If so, yes, that would be a good option if you're looking to lower the total cost.
