  2. Hi. Please fill out the Build Advice form linked in my signature. But to answer your questions
    1)
    For onboard graphics 785G or 880G
    For a low budget 770
    For crossfire 790GX/790X/890GX
    2) DDR3 for an AM3 build
    3) Sounds good
    4) A 5770 is good as well
    5) What resolution is that? 1680x1050?
  3. In the meantime this build should work... May need some fine tuning after you fill out the Build Advice form. See what you think.
