  1. If your screen resolution is 1920 and you are gaming, you'll be better off with a GTX 460. If budget is tight or resolution is lower, the 5770 is fine.

    You can save a few $17 towards it with different memory, same stock spec:


    Or get same speed and lower latency for a few bucks less:


    Excellent psu, but uou can save a few bucks with this equally excellent psu, 620W Seasonic:


    And a few bucks more by stepping down in power, this Corsair 550W is equally excellent & plenty of power for your configuration:


    You could build a more responsive system with a faster HD, this Samsung 500GB:

  2. First of all I agree with Twoboxer a GTX460 might be a better way to go, even "just" the 768mb version. and as for memory i agree aswell the two options he have linked would propbly be better And as for HDD the spinpoint F3 or Baracuda 12 is better options, the F3 is one of the best HDDs on the marked right now, but the Baracuda isn't far behind so if you can save a fair amount of cash i would go for the Baracuda 12(i use the baracuda 12 myself) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148395

    now for my comments

    CPU and motherboard looks good, i would take which ever suppliers that had the cheapest motherboard running with AMD 870 chipset and USB 3 if thats asrock, then that is just perfect :)

    Personally i'm not that big a fan of throwing alot of money on a case, i would rather spend the extra cash on something else, if you are planing on overclocking, then a CPU cooler and run with an open sided case. I'll bet alot of other users in here will disagree with me on this :)

    As for the PSU, i'm not sure excatly how that 3 12v rail works, I would assume they stack. If they don't stack you might have trouple getting it to run your GPU as it is recomended that its got 37AMP(50 if CrossFire/SLI) on the 12v rail, where the PSU you suggested is running 22, 22 and 25, i you want CrossFire/SLI go with http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139005 if don't wanna go CrossFire/SLI, go with Corsair 550VX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139004 it will do just fine with a single HD 5770 or Gtx460 and you can save some cash ;)
  3. Well I would go with the seasonic but with the shipping u only save iuno 2 bucks in comparison?

    I went with this ram

    and I would go with the GTX 460 but that costs bought 30-40 more so nty
  4. Good catch on the shipping. Newegg plays those games, and I missed it.

    Understood on the graphics card - the 5770 will give good game.
  5. I'm not sure if i get what you mean by not beeing able to get the GTX 460 if your budget is 750$
