^ How much does the ASRock cost ? If it is significantly cheaper and has good warranty, then stick with it, also if going with Nvidia card, dont spend money on a Crossfire board,...
I really would need to chk tht with the vendor (AsRock not readily available here).so is this a good build?ur views please.
^ If not much intense CPU work, then even the Athlon X4 would suffice IMO, Also a single 5770 would suffice for your resolution,.. any plans for upgrading the monitor ? If Yes, then keep the option of Crossfire open,...
