    CPU is cheaper on newegg

    That RAM is DDR3-1333 @ 1.5v with CAS 9 latency. That's pretty bad, which explains the low price.

    It will suffice for anything you need it for, but if you want really good RAM look @ this DDR-1600 1.35v CAS 7 latency RAM for 94.99

    I personally would get an 8xx series motherboard. ASUS is a good brand, but I personally would get something like an 890FX. Obviously you're looking for multiple card performance. Just my 2c. I would say more but I gotta get back to work!
  2. Hmm if u planning to go CF + USB/SATA 3.0 on the cheap have a looksy at Asrock 870Extreme3 hehe

  3. I concur with the ASRock. 8x/8x is good enough for 2x5850

    Take a look at the NZXT Lexa S on Newegg. $63 with shipping, very solid case, magnetic latch, bottom PSU mouth, comes with 3 x 120mm fans (one w/blue LED) and a 140mm fan along with room for one more. Has rubber grommets for water cooling and cable management, dust filters and more.

    I'd go with the MOBO suggested below

    You shouldn't be buying stuff off of Amazon, you should get it from Newegg. Your RAM has a CAS Latency of 9. I'd go for 7

  5. HAF 912 > NZXT Lexa
  6. I'd never get an ugly ass HAF over a Lexa S
