It looks like all the parts will work together. Leaving comments on the rest of the build for others, I'm wondering why you are using a caviar blue on a $1000 pc. I see that you have a budget, but if you could fit a 640G black in it should help performance. I don't have any alternate suggestions, but a 3x pci x 2.0 board seems a little overkill for a 5830.
and with the case i personally dont think u should be spending that much for just a lian li case. all you're done is buying the brand name when u buy lian li. the HAF that brennon suggested is much much better. i got the full tower version of the HAF and its awsome.
First of all, I don't have a budget per se ... just wanted a BIG step up from the 5 year old system I am using currently, but don't want to waste money, either.
As far as the case goes, I know I could get cheaper ones ... but I figured if I'm gonna stare at that thing for the next 2, 3, or 4 years, I might as well like the way it looks. The Lian Li was one of the few that I really liked the look of, so I decided to lay out the extra cash for it. I also considered the Antec P182 or P183 ... kind of opposite end of the spectrum, appearance-wise.
I think I would rather get the 5850 ... it's just the XFX ones are out of stock at the moment. Also, got $25 off for combo'ing the 5830, so getting a 5850 would be an extra $100 ... still worth it? Can you even see the difference between the two just by looking? I don't have the experience, which is why I'm asking you guys ...
I'll take a look at those other links ... I'm sure I'll have more questions after I look those up! Thanks!
Personally I spend my years staring at my monitor ather than my case.
Anyway, definately keep away from the 5830 and spend the money on 5850 (if you plan on plenty of gaming you don't want anything less) or 5870. The 5770 is ok if you want to XFire two of them, but personally I would much prefer the 5850 (actually I would love the 5870 if I could afford it)
im still using the 8800gt for my computer and its still running great =) card came out in 2006 and is still running like a champ today.
i still think the 4850x2 xfired would be awsome and cheaper.
i dunno about you guys but when people come to my house the first thing they say about my computer is the case and the watercooling i got inside it. its just like a car...ur gonna spend the most time inside driving(looking at teh screen) but everyone looks at the shiny paint job, the rims, the V8 twin supercharged badge, and the sound of the exhaust(case and stuff inside) =D
