ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Would prefer a quiet machine
I'm building a machine that can be used for work and gaming. For gaming I think the 5770 will suffice for my monitor. Here's what I have so far, any thoughts? I'm not sure if the PSU is suitable for overclocking, so comments on that would be helpful. I'll probably put some more memory at a later time (I have 64 bit versions of linux and windows lying around).
2. PSU - The BP 550 is a decent PSU but not a good one...
I would suggest this one...For the price it is a very good one and that too after rebates even more attractive...Note that this is an 80+ Certified PSU...
