Help on my system! :)

Hi everyone,
Well so this is my first time going to buy at and I'm going to go pick it up when its ready since its not too far off for me to pick up.
I was wondering if you guys can help me decide if this system will run, or crash and burn when i try booting it. If any criticisms vs the system i tried configuring or any case suggestions(cause i have no idea what case to pick) Any help would be great :D thanks. Oh and should i deal with the IEEE1394 card? and built in or external wireless card? ._.

Everyone! :) Okay so i'm having trouble on deciding what case to buy and if this system configuration will work. Please help me out if you have any idea if i will crash and burn or be okay. Thanks :)

  1. Drop the 965 to a 955, dont worry about the eieio card, keep the 1tb drive, ask for a better psu and maybe get a 5850 instead of the 460 but otherwise looks ok imo, how much they taking off you for that build btw?
  2. that currently costs me 826$, but so are the 460gtx vs 5850 like preference? ive seen benchmarks both differing on both cards so i have no clue, if i drop everything you said, itll be about 780$, and got any idea on the case?
  3. Best answer
    The 5850 will be an improvement on the 460 but the 460 is in no way a bad card(They're normally up against 5770's on benchmark stuff),

    i was just trying to up it a little for you, feel free to keep that as your choice if the costs better for you, and I never advise on cases because I feel there a personal thing, I may like xxxx case and you think it looks hideous :)
