Upgrading AMD Gaming PC *Need quick tips

I'm planning on upgrading within the next week and I was wondering what you guys thought about these components working together. Does it all look like it will work well?

MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157207
CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103808
RAM - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231276(This ram says 1.5v is that too high for the mobo?)

Optional MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130223

I will also be getting W7.

And I already have everything else including an HD 5770 1gb and plan on getting a second in the near future.

Any help or hints will be very appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Which mobo do you guys think is my best option?

    The MSI or the ASrock?

    ASrock - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157207
    MSI - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130223

    I plan on CFing later with this mobo so I think the MSI is better with the x16x16 CF. I'm correct on that right? Or do you think the ASrock x8x8 mode is good enough for HD 5770's
  2. I would go with the FX MSI over the GX Asrock.
  3. x8x8 is fine. You can get one of those


    The PCIe slots on that Asrock are too close to each other.
  4. Thanks fellas. Appreciate the help.
