Here's what I've got for my 1100ish music/gaming build. Comments, suggestions appreciated!

Also, everything looks good to me but does anyone see any compatibility issues?

Seems pointless to not get a motherboard with USB3 as the cost is nearly identical.

Why did you get a separate wireless card? You could've thrown in a nice GTX460 768MB.

There are no compatibility issues, everything will work fine.

Not sure I understand, do one of the components I've listed include one? If so I'll ditch that. I've heard good things about the GTX460, think I'll have to swap that out for the 5770!

Nice!:D 

Your build is pretty much on the high end side, that's why i recommended the GTX460.

I've swapped out the MOBO for this one, which is $10 more but has USB 3.0 (which I should have thought of, duh)

Read around on the boards and seems like the GTX460 is the way to go.

Anything else?

If you do need a wireless card, I would grab a cheap USB one. They are cheap and easy to work with/replace when you have problems. They can also be moved from PC to PC easily.


There is an ASUS P7P55D-E that is the same motherboard, updated with USB3/SATA 6GB. In the US its $5 more.
