  1. Your links are broken. Fix it. (Add a space after the : )
  2. 1. Good board + RAM

    2. Good CPU for your budget.

    3. Why the tools? All you need is a simple set of screwdrivers. But it is good to have a decent set of tools.

    4. No comment on the mouse + KB. Imo, spend on a good mouse + KB and it makes a WORLD of difference in gaming, esp. FPS. I have a G5, your taste/likeness may vary significantly.

    5. Excellent choice with the F3s. What it means by "bare" is that it doesn't come with the cables,etc. HOWEVER, your motherboard comes with the SATA cables.

    6. Good choice on PSU, ASSUMING you are planning to CrossFire down the road when prices come down, else it's a bit of an over kill. You may be able to save some money by getting the 650TX (non modular however).

    7. Good case

    8. My sister uses that WiFi card and it works quite well for her. HOWEVER< for gaming, there may be some significant amount of lag, again esp. for a FPS (and no, this is not internet connection or GPU lag).

    9. Good GPU choice.

    Bad idea. Get a legit OEM copy.

    Over all, excellent build. Looks like you've done your home work. :D

    I do plan on crossfireing the 5770's, seems like a good choice for me. And I would do that prob a week or two from when I build the computer.

    About the wifi card, which one do you recommend for no lagg? (only reason i need one is beacuse my internet sucks and i always use my neighbors while everyone else in our house uses ours.)

    Also about the bare drive do i need to buy screws for it?

    The tools are because this is my first build and i want it not to get screwed up.

    I have used a G5 before and for me i felt not difference in my gaming. only difference was no lag, but that was because my friends computer owns.

    Also should I make the switch to Intel and nvidia? or stay with AMD and ATI

    No idea. I don't use WiFi much and the real reason for having WiFi at my house is cause my sister wanted to play on line on her DS and use her laptop with out wires. I have all my builds on CAT 5.

    Quote:

    Imo, at your budget range you have a better price vs performance with AMD + ATI.
  5. I would do CAT 5 too, but our internet is to slow to handle 2 computer connections. and also thats what I thought about AMD+ATI
  6. Could I just have a experinced person tell me if my build is beast? changed the cpu to 955 BE C3 stepping
  7. ^ Overall, good build.
