I don't have many experience with AMD, and have nothing with asrock. But, your system seems pretty good. You could find some benchtests about parts of your system. Perhaps you should make comparison of AMD 770 and 870 or anyting else. Good luck.

well how much would it hurt my performance? I was trying to stay as close to 60fps as possible for new and future games, eventhough crysis seems to be the most reputable game for benching but I really only care about newer titles.... :??: 

but I could over clock......
