What do u think of this build

hi guys, i will almost build a new pc with this upgrade, i plan on putting this together

Case: http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-RC-922M-KKN1-GP-Tower-Black/dp/B0026FCI2U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1287029465&sr=8-1

Mobo: http://www.amazon.com/ASRock-processors-CrossFireX-motherboard-M3A770DE/dp/B002LFYYAY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=pc&qid=1287029740&sr=1-1

CPU: http://www.amazon.com/AMD-HDZ940XCGIBOX-Phenom-3-0GHz-Processor/dp/B001NFT2RI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1287029981&sr=8-1

Memory: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-TW3X4G1333C9A-PC3-10666-1333mhz-240-pin/dp/B002D11C6U/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1287030008&sr=8-5

I already have the Corsair TX650W PSU, and 1 hd 5850 that will go with the system, plan on adding another hd 5850 later.

Do you think that okay and that i will not get any bottleneck when adding the other card??? i can OC the CPU if it is necessary, but if not i plan on leaving it stock

Thx guys, any comment will be appreciated!!!

More about what build
  1. ^ That CPU is an AM2+, hence will not support DDR3, also that ASRock board though supports Crossfire, but will not be a good idea to do Crossfire on that board because the 2nd slot runs crippled at x4 speeds and not x8/ x16,...
  2. Best answer
    Here is a setup,
    Crossfire board -
    ASRock 870 -
    Check the specs -
    PCI Express 2.0 x16: 2 x PCI Express 2.0 x16 slots (Single at x16 or dual at x8/x8 mode)
    Also it has SATA 6GB/s and USB3.0
