How much do you have to spend on your budget? I have a 9800GT and it works quite well, but I'm upgrading to dual GTX 460s (one is arriving today), and those range from 200-250 per card, depending on brand, memory, speed, etc.

My question is, why are you putting an I5 750 in a H57 chipset motherboard? Get a P55 motherboard instead.

Anyway, we need a budget really.

The only reason I would be opting for an p55 would be if I were to CF/SLI, which I dont think I would, so h57 is a better choice for me.

Yes the HD 5770 is a very good card, but I would actually recommend you get something a bit more powerful since you will be gaming at higher resolutions. Maybe a GTX 460 1GB or a GTX 465 or maybe a HD 5850, they are all good cards and will play games well

H57 board choices are limited and not a good deal. The Asus board is very expensive. The Gigabyte board is cheap but lacks features. The MSI board lacks even more features and don't get me started on Intel.

So you need everything? Monitor too?
