Should do fine, the Athlon II X3 440 has shown it self to do rather well in gaming, you shouldnt have any issues. You might not be able to max stuff out but you should be able to play on high.

That's a good balance with the x3 and a 5770. The only thing I'd suggest with doing a new build now is get a mobo with USB 3.0. Won't do much now, but its not any more expensive to have it available. Look for 870 or 880G mobos.

That will work. That's the first a 785 has been pointed out with USB 3.0. Doesn't have the Sata III, but unless you're going SSD in this systems lifetime, you won't use that.

That's interesting. I would think that it would. To know for sure you'd have to contact them or find a different Mobo. Do you need micro ATX?

No problem. Looking at others using the gigabyte boards, no issues I can see with the 440 even though its not on the list. But this Asus board is in the same ballpark with free shipping and the 440 is on the support list. Use the promo code if ordering by tomorrow (wed) and its only $90.
