APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Most parts purchased; want to order video card soon. BUDGET RANGE: 600 After Rebates

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: general home use with good gaming ability

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, DVD-RW

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: Newegg.com
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: USA

PARTS PREFERENCES: I focused on an AMD build and picked parts based on reviews.

OVERCLOCKING: No SLI OR CROSSFIRE: No

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1680x1050, 1920x1080, 1920x1200

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: This will be my first attempt at a new build since 2000 and my Dell mobo crapped out.
I would appreciate any critique on the parts I have ordered and I need help deciding the video card. I am divided between the 4850 or the 5750. Both cards will fit in my budget. I want to have a good computer by the time SC2 is released.

GO for the 5750, if you can make the $20 push, try a 5770, HOly poop it's an increase from the 575- ;)
