  1. Yes but a few things:
    - get an AMD Phenom X4 II 955 instead. The higher number means nothing and both are clockable to 3.8-4.0 easily on air.

    -How about this instead, 890, usb3, sata iii,
    ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

    -These g.skill ripjaws are better and not that much more money. Although newegg is oos right now perhaps you can find it on tiger direct or zipzoomfly.

    -Samsung spinpoint f3 1tb, this is a no brainer. Either that or 7200.12
    (they they have lower capacities)

    - Kind of an unusual case but if you like it then go for it. Might I recommend the Haf922?

    - For like $30 more then those 5770s you can get a single 5870.

    - I bought one of these Cooler Master 120mm fans. It pushes a slight bit more air then your selection and it's quieter.
  2. Also no AM3 build is complete without one of these

    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - $30
  3. Thanks, I subbed in everything you listed except the RAM (that Mobo has some BEAST features), I would have to O.C. it the BIOS and it had a lot of bad reviews when being used on an AMD build, but the 1333 is good enough for me. But one question, the MoBo can support 6GB/s HDD, so shouldn't I take advantage of that and spend $10 more on the one below than the one you listed, or is there some sorta fault with 6GB/s drives?
