I'm new and not super good at computer parts and their function.

How would this work out? Would some ram be better than the ones i chose? Suggestions are appreciated :3

We'll be glad to help you once you follow the format in the "How to ask for new build advice" sticky at the top of the forum. There's not a lot we can do without that basic information.

The parts you listed will work flawlessly together. No worries. Very nice build :D 
Although i would suggest the i7 930 instead of the 920 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115225&cm_re=intel_core_i7_930-_-19-115-225-_-Product...and why not a ssd?, i wouldve thrown the extra 200 bucks and get me a 80 gb ssd

That would definitely increase the performance of your system.


oh..and make sure you have a 64-bit OS to run all all 6gb of ram, a 32-bit OS will only use about 3.5 gigs of the total available memory. and make sure and use windows 7 :D ...don't spoil that build with vista pls.

The parts would work together but just how much were you intending to spend?

On a rough total those parts would run you a $3,000 rig.

Also keep in mind it wouldn't make sense to have two 5970s right now because one alone will max out any game any system.

That is unless you were planning to run 6 monitors on a very high resolution? In that case the monitors alone would cost more then the system.

Even if he wanted to run 6 monitors he can just wait for the xfx HD 5970 eyefinity 6 edition. It supports 6 monitors (using display port) and 4 gb frame buffer. 1 will do just fine IMO. Save your $$$
