Hey guys, after receiving some great feedback on my initial post, ($350 after mail in rebates)I decided to look at another build.

CPU/GPU

RAM/PSU

Mobo

after the feedback in my initial posting, I looked for hardware that was still budget friendly, but considered more futureproof, while still being recognized as a reliable brand.

all in all, this 2nd blueprint is $485 after mail in rebates. package includes a DX11 card, a mobo with crossfire capabilities, a more reasonable PSU built by a more reliable manufacturer and also an apparent upgrade to RAM as apparently OCZ memory is not what it used to be?

Not in love with the Nvidia SLI motherboard (not CF) and your 5770 CF video card.
A better match for that X3 445 CPU: ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 870 Motherboard $100 ACC Core Unlocker, SATA 6Gb/s+ USB 3.0

Everything else looks very good.
OCZ still makes good RAM but that G.Skill is very good and a good price too.
