oh I see it worked.. but well, I'm on a pretty tight $1000 budget (including taxes) so I can't really get that graphics card right now, I'll definately think about upgrading later though or crossfire, same thing for PSU its a bit too expensive.

but that HSF, I think I may be able to squeeze that into my budget.. I'm not really thinking about OC'ing right now though but for 30 bucks thats a nice HSF

well for that resolution the 5770 isn't good you can however downgrade the cpu to an athlon ii x4 and get the 5850/5830

Buy this case it's bigger(wider) and higher quality,finished black inside means nothing if the case isn't windowed
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
the Rosewill will be fun trying to find a suitable HSF that will fit
And PSU wise i would buy the OZC fatality or one of the ModXtremes

Hhmm I changed the DVD drive.. but I actually switched back to the rosewill case, rosewill PSU, and im keeping the msi 870a because it comes with a combo with my CPU..

the reason I'm switching back to the rosewills is because my $1000 budget is a pretty tight budget I'm trying not to go over that (still need to get OS) so I'm definately gonna be at around $1100 but I can't go over that.. lol I will be thinking about all your suggestions still going to look at reviews and such but the rosewills don't have negative reviews.. so I assume it works fine

One question though -> If I order all these parts right now.. and build it I'm good to go right? I don't need anything else I'm not missing anything?

and still taking any suggestions, looking for more views and opinions from people

buddy rosewill psu's are sh** quality they are like slighhtly better than generic psu's (definatly from the avoid list)
please don't skimp on the psu if it dies or overvolts orr undervolts it can destroy your system

lol ok you convinced me.. what brands would you recommend? and what wattage would be good for my system? and I have one more question..

because the HIS radeon hd 5770 went out of stock.. im buying this XFX one, it comes with a combo with OCZ obsidian 4gb ram

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Item...

my mobo.. says it can handle 1600 ram but it has (OC) beside it, does that mean OC my processor? or.. what will I have to do to get 1600 ram to work on that mobo.. maybe I'll just switch mobos

for psu brands: corsair antec pc power&cooling seasonic silverstone and ocz
for video card get either xfx(for double liftime warranty) or sapphire(for quality and cooling)
1600oc means that you need to set the timings and speed of the ram manualy through the bios

if the thing Davcon is saying does not work (it doesn't work for me)

click on the link, drag it into a new tab, and it should work

and davcon is 550 watt psu enough? should I spend an extra 20 and get a 700 watt one?

should I get the XFX (juniper xt) version or the regular one? (regular one is alot cheaper)

is this case good instead of the antec 300 or should I get the antec 300
