Yes it will work. Is it advisable, no.

Here's a much better build for roughly the same price. Get the HDMI cable from MonoPrice.com and save some cash.

Links might not work, so I'm still working on an exact price...

CPU/Mobo: X4 955 and Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4 $245 after rebate (with a free game)
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws 2x2 GB 1600 mhz CAS Latency 7 $110
GPU/PSU: HD 5850 and OCZ StealthXStream 700W $305 after rebate
HDD/Case: Seagate 7200.12 500 GB and Antec 902 $94 after rebate
Optical: Cheap SATA DVD burner $20
OS: Windows 7 Home 64-bit OEM $100

Total: $874

What Do you think is bad about that build, because the one you have is great but we have an 800 dollar budget

Dude, go with Mad's build. That's a sick deal on that 5850. And that card is much more powerful than the 4890 not to mention it's directx 11 capabilities.

An $800 budget? Then why did your build cost $860?

If you need to shave some costs, drop the X4 955 to a X3 440. That'll save a good $85-90, which would get you under $800...
