You should be able to fit a X4 955 into that.
The case link is broken so I'll hold off on recommending one.
You also left off crossfire so I'll allow for it.

Comes in at $744. You'll need to allow a bit for the case so I don't think you're going to be able to fit a 5830, but it's not the best value anyways. See what you think.

Oh, because i wanted my gpu to last me a while with future games at high quality smoothly so i didn't want the 5770 and i didn't know of the dimensions of the 5830, so should i just get a 5770?

That Antec TruePower New TP-750 jbakerlent linked is probably good for five or six years worth of power, easy.

1 x 5770 is a good match for your current 1440x900 monitor. It would even do okay in many games at 1920x1080. With a 2nd 5770 in CF it would rock 1920x1080 games. That TP-750 PSU has plenty of power to spare for that.

Nice find on that combo deal: Phenom II X4 955 + ASUS M4A79XTD EVO + SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5770 1GB and $30 off.
Yeah, I think most people would say its a good deal and great match.

^Agree. Small note that may not be of any consequence, but that mobo has no USB 3.0 ports or SATA 6Gb/s connectors.

Okay so 2 last questions.
1. these are compatible, right?
2. will this fit all the components? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and does it come with risers?
