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?
