I've been reading your great site and think I'm ready to order my parts for my first homebuild. I guess, while I maybe going overboard in some areas, I really would like to know if this system will work.

I have a case, monitor, mouse and keyboard. I planning on ordering the following:

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition

Cooler: COOLER MASTER Hyper 212

MOBO: GIGABYTE GA-780XTA-UD4 AM3 AMD 790X SATA 6Gb/s

PU: COOLER MASTER UCP RS900-AAAAA3 900W

VIDEO: 2 SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100283VHL Radeon HD 5770

HD: Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM

RAM: for a total of 8GB 2 G.SKILL 4GB (2X2GB 240-Pin DDR3

OPTIC: PLEXTOR 24X DVD/CDE Writer Black SAT

Rosewill RCR-IC00274-in-1 USB 2.0 3.5 Internal Card Reader

Koutch PCI to USB 2.0 Card Model IO-PU520

Arcitic Silver 5 Thermal Coumpound OEM

OS: Microsoft Windows XP Professional OEM Disk, "New"

Will this sytem work ? Is if, at least a little future proof. I'm waiting for you opinions before I hit the order button. Two cards, cross fire, yeh, will it work ?

Thank you as always for you assistance and thoughts.

A corsair 750W PSU will be more then enough for 2 HD 5770s in xfire even 2 HD 5870s

I would look into a HDD seagate 7200.12 1TB

If this is mainly a gaming rig Drop to 4 gigs of ram

Window 7 64 bit

not sure what case you have or what the rez is on your monitor, but i would look into 1 HD 5850 for now and xfire down the road
