Gaming PC - About to purchase

Ok so I've done some research and this is what I've come up with. I'm building a gaming pc (for modern games in 1080 resolution), and I'm in Canada so I'm using mainly Newegg.ca

Basically I just want to make sure that all these parts will work together. If not, could you suggest something in the same price range? I'm all ready to order this, I just need confirmation that it will all work once I build it.

First of all, these are the parts that I already have and they CANNOT be changed. I had a previous thread and I don't think I was clear about that, as people suggested I change them. Again, these parts can't be changed:

PSU: Corsair TX750W 750W ATX 12V 60A 24PIN ATX Power Supply Active PFC 140MM Fan

HDD: Western Digital WD1001FALS Caviar Black 1TB SATA2 7200RPM 4.2MS 32MB 3.5IN Dual Proc Hard Drive OEM

Optical: Samsung SH-S223B/BEBE 22X DVD+-RW SATA DVD Writer Black OEM

Monitor: ASUS VW246H Glossy Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 (1000:1) Built-in Speakers


Now, here's what I have yet to order:

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Mobo/CPU: i5 750 and Asus p7p55d-Pro

GPU: XFX HD-585X-ZAFC Radeon HD 5850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity

RAM: G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7D-4GBECO


Also, I want to eventually get a second 5850 for Crossfire, so I need to know if that will work/if I have enough room. Also thinking about possibly adding an SSD in the future.

So what do you think? Will this work?

  1. Also forgot to mention that I'm looking to buy this within the next 2-3 days.
  2. i would think about these products and you can decide

    cpu/mb: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.437418

    gpu: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150490&cm_re=5870-_-14-150-490-_-Product

    case: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811112236&cm_re=lancool-_-11-112-236-_-Product

    i know this is more but its just a thought. the case is better and the 5870 will last longer and you most likely wont need to crossfire for a longer time
  3. I can't seem to follow those links.
