Don't plan on overclocking until a learn more about, so
eventually maybe.
Mono comes with integrated card so I was hoping to
crossfire if possible.
Build is for gaming, little internet browsing, maybe a word
document once in awhile.
I would like to run high resolution, naive in this
department so I can't give specifics.

Here's something a bit different than what you had, but it gives you another idea so to say. This build allows you to add another vid card later on down the road, as well as o/c.

That looks pretty good, couple of questions; what would recommend
for memory, and is there any differences in hookup between
mini- hdmi and hdmi.
