1. Where u getting your h/w ..possible to link to an online h/w site?
2. Main use of rig and if gaming: what resolution
3. Any current h/w that could be reused
4. Max budget
5. Try to hit an 80+ certified with active PFC PSU from Corsair, Antec, OCZ and if in Europe BeQuiet

Linking the sites is hard since they would be in swedish + i'll be useing diffrent sites for almost every part...cheaper that way..

Gaming at 1900x1200

Current h/w is gaming laptop.. No luck im afraid!

Mac budget in $ would be 1200 (or 1100 depending on that paycheck)

Look to hit (in the GPU department) performance equalling or exceeding HD 5830

Yep just that your post stated Sapphire HD 5770 for consideration ^^ LGA 1156 also runs in dual channel so look for 2 x 2 DDR3 RAMs The $$ looks steep for me but if u can afford it ...

Yes the 5770 is in case the money runs out.. Hopeing it wont..

Thanks for the advice!
