Newegg and frys have kingston ssd's on sale sometimes; some models have trim support; I don't recommend overclocking with ssd's; two of mine failed; thought it was some other reason, but overclocking probably did them in. For video cards, I recommend xfx or powercolor, unless you can find an evga with a lifetime warranty. Check out the reviews carefully if noise bothers you; it bothers me so much that I go fanless on all my cards.

Why not buy a CM Hyper 212+ somewhere for$30.
The V8 is ok but no better then the Hyper for price/performance.

ok don´t know much about ram i chose myne cause they are made for am3 processors mainly but if you don´t reccomend them i will try to change them i realy like the 2 link you put on

about timings on ram what do i have to look for ? i donñt undestand this
thanks

The cas or cl is the delay time between the moment a memory controller tells the memory module to access a particular memory column on a RAM memory module, and the moment the data from given array location is available on the module's output pins. In general, the lower the CAS latency, the better.
CL7 is faster then CL9.

A good SSD is the Muskin Callisto Deluxe 60gb, its pretty cheap currently compared to most and its a great company. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Review: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1307/6/

Those blacklines he suggested are good, but I also think a good ram to look at is this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The G.Skill Ripjaws.

For your main HDD, if your getting an SSD boot drive you don't need another fast drive its just a waste of money. A good large sized, but also cheap drive is the Samsung F3 1TB, it is at the cost of a 640GB WD Black drive, but faster and cheaper. The reason for the faster speed is because the F3's run two platters of 500gb unlike WD's Black drives that run 334gb platters. Also that specific HDD has a 32mb cache, not a big change but still good.

Also, what exactly is your ENTIRE budget, because if you can afford an SSD and Velcioraptor drive, you obviously have a large budget. You might as well save with the F3 and get something like the AMD Phenom II X4 955 and or get the HIS 5850 iCooler V Turbo. Or if you want a cheaper card the EVGA 460GTX are good cards.
Also what will you be using this computer for, and if you still stay with the 5770 the ASUS CuCore is a good card.

It's actually really good, plus the pricing is just fantastic, What are your needs for this comp, that way i could recommend a good VGA card. Also, what is the resolution your going to be playing games or whatever at.
