The 460 beats the crap out of the 5770. Also the 5770 is somewhat old and isn't all that powerfull

Having a limited budget as you say,
option two, the 955 and a 5770
Theres plenty of gaming power in it and you have the option of clocking it ofc later on, but if you could afford it, maybe a higher gfx card in time

GTX 460 is more powerful than a Radeon 5770, but a Phenom II 955 is more powerful than an Athlon II X4, but to be honest the AthlonII/GTX460 combo should net better results in most games.

if u really are on a "tight budget" then get the 640 (or even an athlon II X3) & 5770.. thats more than enough at your rather low resolution..

but it doesnt seem that u are on that tight of a budget.. in that case jus go for the gtx 460 it will last longer than the 5770..

put together what you want then when you are ready to buy contact the newegg rep online and ask for a combo discount. Why settle for what they have; build what you want!

PSU & RAM you wanna get is just GREAt for gaming ...i suggest you 5770 , 5830 & 5850 for GAMING { not sure about which brand is good maybe GIGABYTE } & for CPU AMD is good but INTEL Q9400 can beat it { it is VERY POWERFULL CPU } dont get i cores they are not real QUAD CORE & they are too expensive .. Q9400 can beat them too ...go for it
