  4. 6850 is overkill for 1024*768
    get a 5770
  5. 1024x768 ? Is that the native resolution of your minitor ? Then that's what you play at. Here are a few items.... the processor should be at least $10 cheaper so keep your eyes open. The PSU you chose is fine.. that's where the alternative mobo and ram come in.. to save a little money.
