  1. Check out the articles on our Tek Wisdom page for ideas......

    The new Z68 mobos are out but an H67 or P67 should be fine as well.

    With a budget of $600, you should have lots of options.

    those are intel boards? i need amd
  3. LOL. id suggest the M4A79XTD EVO

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402&Tpk=asus%20m4a79xtd%20evo

    I owned one with my AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE.

    Works like a charm. Don't forget to be VERY CAREFUL with ESD ( Electric Static Discharge). Not paying attention can cost you the whole PC.
  4. One more thing. IF YOU CAN, I highly recommend you too save 40$ more and get the XFX HD 6850 @ 140.00$ with the rebate. FREE Game - Dirt 3

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150551

    It scores more than twice of your HD 5770 and costs 40$ more. Even Though I'm sure the HD 5770 is more than 100$.

    Just saying. The choice is in your hand.
