5770 performs much worse than a 5870.

But if you need to save $100 to buy an OS, just drop down to a 5850.

edit: grr beat again by 2 secs!!

A 5870 is way better than a 5770. You would at least want a 5850 for gaming.

The samsung spinpoint F3 is the best mainstream HD to buy ATM in terms of performance/price.

It's the second fastest standard HDD out there. The fastest is $110 and the difference is barely noticeable, even in benchmarks.

Google them. Or check the charts.

You're likely not going to be able to get benchmarks for your exact PC as each part is typically benchmarked separately with higher end parts to reduce bottlenecks. Also, some benchmarks are only obtained artificially, like the gaming benchmarks for the CPU.

In general terms, the X4/5870 build would be able to play Crysis with max details at 1920x1080 with little trouble. The x4/5850 build would need a little lower details for Crysis at that resolution, but wouldn't have a problem with any other game out there.

You get a warranty on each individual part already.

I've heard that putting a line between the heat pipes is the best way, but if the directions say something different, I'd follow them.

No. The Hyper comes with thermal compound. The aftermarket stuff generally only lowers temps a few degrees, which isn't useful unless you're trying for a mammoth overclock.

Yes. You may need to set the specs manually in BIOS, but you should do that anyway.
