Not sure what the $USD exchange rate is ...

I also would like you to post us a link for your rendering software, so we can peruse the system requirements and recommendations.

I've seen you around, for awhile ... hope this build comes together well, for you.

YES! ... very decent ... I know it is alot more money, but stretch for a 5850, if at all possible.

You may wish to consider an AMD "Black Quad" and spend your savings on the 5850.

I never did get your exact rendering software requirements or any info on "how much of that" you do.

... Do you already have some experience with that render sw? ... Do you already know how long it takes to do "your-type" of renders, on any system spec?

I just want to make sure we don't shave your budget in the wrong spot, or to spend too much on the wrong component(s). (The 860 may VERY well be complete overkill and the 5770 is likely not rated, for hard-core hi-rez "frames/sec" type games.

yeah also considered getting a 5850. but my dad says were oOoOver budget. so i got a midrange card. .

yeah the amd 955?3.2ghz. i considered it. but dont like there mobo's . so i went with i7 860.

this is what i use. feel free to browse the site..well the 860 would be a future proof maybe.. im not a hard core hi rez gamer. i play games like spiderman wos,nfs shift, not playing crysis. im playing crysis 2 on my 360. soo my pc would be on games like starcraft 2. and for some video encoding. that would make my 860 useful.

I am not a big fan of Socket 1156 ... The 860 is a rockin' chip, tho ...

... As far as being over budget ... Moving to the AMD/AM3 socket will save you hundreds (of US dollars) and do a much better job of future proofing you ...
... I won't argue, tho ... your money.

Yeah what Alvin said AMD will save you lots of money.

is hexacore coming this may? yeah. people said that socket 1156 would be a dead socket after this year. because of the coming intel hexacore for the 1336 socket.
