More about does build okay
  1. That's actually a really good build.

    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.
  2. Doesn't he still need a mobo?
  3. @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.
  4. @ 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.
