hmm thanks last question do you think the 5770 will fit in the motherboard since there is a IDE plug or something at the opposite of PCI-E 2.0 Plug. Thanks again for the reply

should be fine with that. Unless you are using an old IDE device, it won't have any chance to interfere. and even then, a 5770 shouldn't be a full-length card.

here some input, next time actually give people some time to actually respond to your post before hand:) 

Parts look pretty decent for the most part, i would have got a slightly better brand mobo and GFx card though. The deal on the gfx mobo isn't that great and HIS is not the greatest of brands. I built a system with pretty much the exact same specs (MSI military class mobo) for $540 with a gtx 460 (last piece purchased for $170). Combo deals and rebates worked out very well and the gtx 460 is significantly more powerful than a 5770, when overclocked it compares to a 5850 (i.e., can run nearly every game out there maxed out with high fps).

it should be all compatible as its designed. The system will be solid, as i said before cant vouch for the brand gfx card and mobo though, id go with something else if it were me.

I cant tell what psu u wanted as the combo u linked isnt valid anymore.

This i would highly recommend:

work the system around that combo deal; when you do the math its roughly $40 bucks more for the video card. This card is Significantly faster than the 5770 and will play pretty much all your games maxed out. EVGA is top brand and later down the line when you want to upgrade these cards in SLI are fantastic they actually out perform even the 5850 in SLI (read the reviews).

just my opinion, good luck.

ohh and you should be able to have all the items in combos if you do it right, you missing out on at least $20 in savings.

hmm thanks man for the reply means a lot. Uhm if you can you find me a build with GTX 460 without getting out the $500 range and make sure the Processor is a the same 445. if you can that be great and make the ram 3gb if you need to. thanks again your replys mean a lot.
