I have changed few things as you notice.I prefer to have 5770 because it runs cheaper power.
I wont be doing crossfire and i will be doing overclocking.I took out the dominator gt C6 for the
C7 instead.I have include the gigabyte UD6 because its simpy cheaper than UD7 and has 24
hour phase and extra slots for the memory ram for future upgrades if i decide to put more ram
on the motherboard.I know the gigabyte 5770 super overclock has no future proof but its cheaper
to run than 5850.And i'm surely i will be able to get good smooth frame rates with high resolutions.
I will be mainly running the games online,you tube and web surfing.I picked the cavier black 1TB
for power computing over the cavier green.I also have 550W aerocool E85 certified power supply
to match with aerocool gaming case.And lastly for the cpu,i chosed the i5 760 quad core.
So here it is...

01:Aerocool Syclone Mid Tower Gaming Case Black/Red with Red Led
02:Aerocool E85-550W Power Supply with Blue Led and 80+ Bronze Certified
03:Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6
04:Intel Core i5 760 2.80GHz Quad Core
05:Corsair 4GB CMT4GX3M2A1600C7 Comes with Fan
06:Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB WD1002FAEX
07:Samusung SH-B083L/RSBP Blu-Ray Combo Drive
08:Gigabyte Radeon HD 5770 GV-R577SO-1GD Super Overclocked
09:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM
10:Xigmatek Achilles S1284C R2 CPU Cooler

So there ya go,what do you think of this gaming rig?

The ASUS P7P55D-E Pro is a better board overall than the P55A-UD6 whose SATA III and USB 3.0 bring the first PCI-E lane to x8, and disabling the other PCI-E lane.
Might as well go with the ASUS P7P55D-E LX, MSI P55-CD53 or GIGABYTE GA-P55-USB3.

I don't see why you'd really want Dominators, this kit is much cheaper and does the job just as well:

Otherwise it looks good.

Wow... Lmeow is trying to help you get more out of your money man. I would listen as the more money you save on those parts can go to better parts somewhere else in the system!

well i understand what your trying to say and i know you are trying to help,but i dont want to upgrade the video card to 5850,it uses more power consumption than 5770,if thats what your trying to do?
July 26, 2010 7:45:40 AM

^fharper, thanks for backing me up but it's his money - his choice.

No idea on 3DMark/Vantage scores you'd get.

The G.Skill Ripjaws RAM is equally fast and is cheaper, so I really do not see the reason why you wouldn't want it. It's up to you.

The reason I chose that motherboard is because if you decide to use SATA III and USB 3.0, the second PCI-E x16 lane is disabled, I don't think you mind that though, and the first PCI-E x16 lane will run at x8, which may bottleneck cards in the future, it bottlenecks the HD 5970. The GA-P55A-UD3 offers just as much as the GA-P55A-UD6 in your case, and the UD3 saves you $120 or so. The P55A-UD6 offers slightly better audio, two FireWire and eSATA ports, and that's about all that it has over the UD3.

I wasn't really suggesting the HD 5850, but your PSU has far more than enough power to handle one HD 5850. If you downgrade the motherboard and the RAM you could easily fit an HD 5850 in your budget.

now that i searched on the motherboard,ud6,it has got the sata 3 and usb 3.0,you are right about the second one will be disabled unless if i put the 2nd 5770 video card for the crossfire and then it will be back to normal,then again,i'll have to upgrade the power supply to run both cards at once.it sounds good i think.
July 26, 2010 9:35:22 AM

and also too,while were at it,i like to think of the video cards in between the xfx 5770 overclock or the gigabyte 5770 overclock.which one has better rating in gaming?thank you again.my apology.

550W should be enough for two HD 5770s.

The XFX Radeon HD 5770 XXX edition has a 25 MHz overclock, the Gigabyte Radeon HD 5770 SOC (Super Overclock) has a overclock of 50 MHz, so the Gigabyte Radeon HD 5770 SOC should be faster.

Hi! Antonythegamer it's me again.
You should seriously consider Lmeow's advice he really knows his stuff.

Personally if i were to buy a new mobo today it would be the E-PRO.
Btw i own Dominators which are very good i have two kits but i also own the same G.skills kit he recommended.
The G.skills are every bit as good and who doesn't like to save a few bucks.
I'll only comment on the gpu saying i like XFX for their warranty and support which is excellent in North America.

Hello,hows all going?

I think i just got the right tools for the ultimate gaming for under two grand australian dollars.Lets recap another research,let me know what you think?

01:NZXT Lexa Blackline Midi-Tower Case-ATX-Black/Red LED=$162.65
02:Corsair VX450W-450W Power Supply=$96.15
03:EVGA P55 FTW Motherboard=$316.75
04:Intel Core i5 760 Quad Core (2.80GHz-3.33GHz)=$295.70
05:Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3 RAM=$237.00
06:Western Digital 1000GB (1TB) (WD1002FAEX) Caviar Black=$150.65
07:Samsung SH-B083L Blu-Ray Combo Drive=$105.60
08:EVGA GeForce GTX460-1GB GDDR5 - (763MHz,3800MHz)=$341.30
09:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit OEM=$147.60
10:Corsair CWCH50-1 Cooling Hydro Series H50 CPU Cooler=$133.00

The total cost of your contents is $1,986.40.

I think that is the best i can get.I hope the power supply can run all that,according to the corsair power supply recommendation on the minimum system with gtx 460 minimum requirement is 450w with extreme overclocking on the cpu and overclocked video card.The memory ram is ultimate dominator not the gt,so its cheaper and it should still be fast and smooth.Thank you once again.

Better air coolers like the Prolimatech Megahalems or Thermalright Venomous-X are available.

Might as well just get a slightly 700W PSU so later on you can SLI two GTX 460s & overclock as well.

Otherwise it looks pretty good, the EVGA P55 FTW is a bit pricey, I'd go with the Asus P7P55D-E Pro if available.
