APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE:1-2 months

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:gaming, justin.tv streaming

PARTS PREFERENCES: Intel,ati

OVERCLOCKING:In the future

MONITOR RESOLUTION:1920x1080

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: First build, having trouble with knowing how will I connect all the case fans. 3 are in the case: 1 intake,1 rear exhaust and 1 top exhaust. Going to add 5 more fans, will i be able to connect all of these to the motherboard inputs, and psu using molex inputs? Parts are all from newegg with the exception of the hyper 212 and monitor. Also is the motherboard okay, having second thoughts. Not sure because of some usb 3.0 limitations on the pcix16 slots if you could explain(if you know) because i don't necessarily need these features if they limit the gpu when im playing games which i dont belive they do just making sure. Also opinions on mainstream game frame rates at this resolution.Also might get the 5830 instead of the hd 5770 if its worth it..?

^ Why do you want so many fans ?? Not worried about the noise ??

And crossfiring on that board wont be a good option as the 2nd PCIe slot would run at x4 which will bottleneck the 2nd card...

Oh i wasnt thinking about crossfiring sorry if i mislead. The pc might be in a hot environment kinda worried about how hot it will get....

^ Well then just get that NZXT...The stock fans would suffice...Or even the
Antec 300 Illusion with 4 stock fans would be good...

If you wont be crossfiring, then you wont need that 650W PSU...Any of these would be good enough even for HD 5870...

And when you make the purchase, do check for combos as those save good money...

A few things u should know about SATA/USB 3.0 tech and mobos as shown by our very own forums here
USB 3.0, SATA 6Gb/s, Motherboards, And Overcoming Bottlenecks
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/usb-3.0-sata-6gb,25...
Also note that LGA 1156 shall be usurped by LGA 1155 as soon as end of this year/possible Q1 next year if u intending to sink a wee bit on chip + board FYI...
http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cpus/2010/04/21/intel-...

So you think that the 1156 will drop along with the processor.. how long do you think this setup will last?

If $$ is no object and no compromises go LGA 1366 else AM3/890FX if u looking for 16/16 + SATA 6GB/S + USB 3.0?
