Everything is from newegg. Is there anything better/cheaper i could do. This would be my first system build but have upgraded many parts on many different computers. Any info on cheaper/better Items would be great thanks. Especially haveing trouble deciding on video card. Wondering if i should go ahead with the directx11 card, or use a radeon 4850x2 or 4870x2. or just stick with the 5770 and add another 5770 later . is the motherboard compatiable for crossfire ect. Like I said any info would be appreciated, im hoping this build will be plenty upgradeable in the future for crossfire, extra mem and everything.

I too am building an AMD machine (you can look at my components on this board on my thread if you want).

That seems like a great gaming machine for the budget minded enthusiast.

If you wanted to, you could purchase an AM2+ motherboard, use the processor you've selected (which is fully backwards compatible with the socket) and use DDR2 RAM instead (which would save some, not alot, of cash).

Good luck on the build, and happy gaming! :p

if its a new system, and you have to buy everything, i'd go with ddr3 ram. its not really all that more expensive, and its the latest and greatest for desktop ram. If you have ddr2 ram laying around, then by all means use an am2+/am3 board and use the ram you already have
