hi people lm subscribing cause l want to buy a new pc but lm not sure on what to buy really. l got a certain budget so l though certain components should be fine for me, they are:

cpu: Intel Core i5 750 2.66GHz 2.5 GT/s L3-8MB Lynnfield LGA1156 BOX
http://www.nexths.it/v3/flypage.php?mv_arg=BX80605I5750
gpu: ATI Sapphire Radeon HD5970 OC Edition 2GB Gddr5 2*Dvi/Mini-DP Pci-Ex
http://www.nexths.it/v3/flypage.php?mv_arg=21165-01-51R
ram: Corsair 6GB Kit 3*2GB DDR3-1600 CMX6GX3M3A1600C9 XMS3-12800 CAS9
http://www.nexths.it/v3/flypage.php?mv_arg=CMX6GX3M3A16...
mobo: Asus P7P55D-PRO P55 i7/i5 SLI/CrossFire DDR3 GLan sk1156 ATX
http://www.nexths.it/v3/flypage.php?mv_arg=P7P55D-PRO

My question is: would l be cpu limited with this gpu? I just want this pc for gaming and hope its gonna kick some azz. All these will cost me around €1.122

What you think?

Thx

The i5-750 and the 5970 are fine together. If it's available, and doesn't cost too much more the i5-760 is also a fine processor.

You should really get a dual-channel RAM kit (4 GB) rather than the triple-channel kit you have. The 6 GB kits are really only for socket 1366.

If it's available, I would get the Asus P7P55D-E Pro for USB 3.0 & SATA 6.0 Gb/s support.

If you could post in the format in How to Ask for New Build Advice, you might get responses better suited to your situation.

I think a 5970 would be a pretty decent upgrade over 2 9800gtx+ you'd probably be getting close to twice the performance and of course, similar power consumption, and the goodies of dx 11

I don't have time to check through the website to see if that's your best choice, but the specs look fine. Generally, I find that Corsair RAM costs more than other brands with the same specs, especially the Dominator series. 1600 MHz CL7 is generally the best value, but if you can't find that, the performance difference is only 1-2% at most.

I think the Asus P7P55D-E Pro is the best 1156 motherboard available. If possible, find the one with USB 3.0 support, I can't tell from the description if the one you selected has that.

cold l found the mobo cost 10 € more! nothing at least and it has all the specs mencioned by you, lm getting that one.

So for the ram, you right with but l found corsair the most compatible, lm gonna check what the asus propos for this mobo about ram.

Actually lm keeping my 9800 sli hope l get some better fps with this new system, guess my athlon x2 6400+ isn't good enough for the sli running so prob lm cpu limited actually.

well nvidia's new card are going to be revised version of already existing cards, like the 485 which is just a fully functional 480, and the 475 which is a fully functional 460, there maybe sometime with the name 490-5 which would most likely be sometime along the lines of 460 in sli, since 2 480 would already put it way over the pci-3 specifications

as for the 6xxx it's really just a revised version of the 5xxx series as well, there will be changes to the memory controller i believe and i believe the geometry unit, but the difference won't be that great, it will simply be making up for it's weakness in games that are still primarily texturing intensive, there won't be much of a difference,
