hi guys same question as before... i was just wondering if this would be a good build considering that i'd be using this for gaming, some overclocking, and no need for xfire.

here it is:

phenom II x2 555 be



OCZ Technology OCZ3BE1600C8LV4GK

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X 100283VXL Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5

i would still need an hdd(320gb would suffice for now), lcd monitor (the bigger the better? though hopefully below $100?) and this time a psu... it finally gave in also...

i need to settle the parts asap and hopefully drive the cost down to $500 max of $600 again thanks for the advice guys!

None of your links work.

This is about the cheapest your going to get with a 5770 and 4GB ddr3 ram.

If you had to go cheaper then switch the 5770 for a 4850, won't lose much performance. The 4850 is one step down from the 5770.

an LCD monitor with those specs all under $500 is absolutely impossible. This is the cheapest you can get with an LCD.

so the phenom II x2 555 be build wouldn't materialize... T_T though i guess i'd be following the first build you advised the one with rana... :D  thanks in advance!
