Hey Guys, so i was recommended the following setup and I'd like to ask the community if it is any good for a computer that is 80% gaming, 5% school work, 5% video/gfx editing, 10% internet browsing(youtube, facebook)

Preferred Website: (It is german and I am sorry but it is extremely easy to do, since you just enter the product name in the search bar and it'll give you the price)

Preferred MOBO/Processor:
Gigabyte, Intel i-series

Budget: 850 Euros which is around 1100 dollars

Resolution/Games: 1680 x 1050(22" LCD), FPS(call of duty: mw2, crysis)/Racing Games(nfs:shift, dirt 2)

What I was recommended for gaming:
Mobo: Gigabyte Ga-770TA-UD3 AMD770 AM3 ATX
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 3.20GHz (C3) AM3 6MB 125W Black Edition
Graphics Card: 1024MB HIS Radeon HD8580 iCoolverv GDDR5 PCIe
Disc Drive: LG GH22NS50 SATA
Harddrive: 500GB Samsung HD502HJ F3 16MB 7200 U/min SATA
RAM: 2x2048 G.Skill DDR3 CL9
Case: ATX MIDI NZXT Beta Case
Power Supply: ATX SEASONIC M12II-520 Bronze 520W

As I dont know much about the perfect rig, it seems good to me but I would really like to crossfire and reviews say that the UD3 is no good for crossfiring. In addition is the Phenom II X4 better than the Intel i5-750 (<- been focusing on this)?

Lastly, I would like to say that you dont need to use the rig I was recommended as a base, just tell me what you would consider the best 850 Euro gaming rig.

Thanks so much for helping guys, I really appreciate it.

Looks good but for future CF you need to change the mobo to GIGABYTE GA-790XT-USB3 and a bigger PSU like Enermax PRO-82+ II 625 Watt or Seasonic M12II-620 Bronze 620W or Antec Truepower NEW TP-650 650W.
