  1. I'd say get this combo: AMD Phenom II X4 955 & MSI 890GXM-G65 890GX SATA 6Gbps USB 3.0 MATX $277. If you didn't want/need SATA6G/USB3 then you could cut down even further.

  3. Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W
    Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 Modular

    You can run two HD5770 on those PSUs if you want to crossfire.

    COOLER MASTER Elite RC-310

    G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 1333 CAS 8
  4. ^ Well I do agree that HD 5770 is not a power hungry card, but IMO 600W would be safe for 2 of those cards...
  5. I've run two of those on my 450W Corsair VX. And TV tuner, sound card, 3HDDs and whatnot. True, the 450VX is actually a 500W Seasonic.
  6. ^ Hmm...but dont take me wrong, I still dont feel like suggesting a low powered PSU if crossfiring...
