If you didn't have a decent combo on the graphics card, I would suggest looking at trying to fit a 6850 in, as they're about 50%+ performance for $20-40 more than a 5770. Without exhaustively researching combos, I don't think you can do too much better. m 0 l 1-anh November 10, 2010 5:08:21 PM Doesn't he still need a mobo? m 0 l Related resources Does my gaming CPU Build look okay? - Forum Does this build look okay and will it work? - Forum How does my build look?

Get the answer dandydaniel November 10, 2010 5:13:18 PM @1-anh, no he has a combo deal with his GPU for an ASRock mobo. The build looks fine. Doubt you should upgrade to the 6850. The 5770 should be more than enough to handle everything that is out. m 0 l 1-anh November 10, 2010 6:27:30 PM @ dandydaniel, whoops I apologize didn't see that there. Look's like a solid build to me, but personally I would go for at least an athlon x4 and an hd 6850. But his current setup definitely looks good. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
