Because the 5770 is old card with limited capabilities. With that cpu, you would definitely have a bottleneck with your graphics card. 2 5770's would lose to a single 5830 or a Gtx 460.

Yeah, everything is fine, if you want more towards your gpu, I really do suggest a GTx 460, expecially if you want to. They are the best at scaling in todays market (most efficient at SLI/Crossfire). I would change it to the AMD 965: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Which will give 20 or more dollars towards a gpu. The x4 has a higher clock and can be reasonable overclocked. Unfortunately most games have yet to utilize 6 cores, so for now the 4 core is a better choice.

the gtx 460 is probably the best mid-range gpu on the market at the moment, i would highly suggest you go that way

im considering it to, but i want a cpu that last for at least 2 to 3 years, that is why im planning for x6 amd, and oc it at 3.4 ghz to get the clock speed of 965 or maybe higher once i get a better cooler.. is it correct.. actualy im thinking a pc to be use in 2 to 3 years.. tnx alot for the comment

From what I understand, if it has two PCI express slots, which it does, your good to go with SLi

For AMD socket motherboards, only those with an Nvidia chipset can support SLI. Something like this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... - the motherboard you're considering now would only support Crossfire. If graphics performance is your primary concern, I'd recommend switching to an SLI-ready motherboard and getting the GTX460's. However, if you absolutely must have USB 3.0 support, you're better off sticking with your current selection.

That has to be the most asinine thing I have ever read.

Two 5770's in crossfire beat a 5850 the majority of the time and sometimes even challenge a 5870.

DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT get a 5830, its huge, hot, and power hungry.

On the other hand a 5770 is a great card that is very cool, small, and efficient, plus it scales great in crossfire.

Don't let this fool put lies into your head.

Calling someone a fool is far from being a jerk, but if you are that sensitive then that's your own problem.

You said "2 5770's would lose to a single 5830 or a Gtx 460."

That is a complete lie and only a fool would say that.

people make mistakes...don't need to jump to name calling :pfff: 

but you are right, 2 5770s beat a single 5830 and a 5850, often going toe to toe with a 5870
