Greetings earthlings.

I hope to get some advice, opinions and alternatives for my gaming rig on the budget (~$500). Not looking for the top of the line but plan to keep it and be able upgrade it in the future (desired features: overclocking and cross fire). Favorite games Starcraft II, Half-Life, Crysis, Day of Defeat, Civ, ...

The easy part:
CPU
AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition 3.2GHz

RAM
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333

Power Supply
Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W

Hard Drive
SAMSUNG F3 HD502HJ SATA 500GB 7200 RPM


This is where the trouble starts :cry: 

Motherboard choices
1. ASRock EXTREME3 870
2. Asus M4A79XTD-EVO
3. Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3

Video card choices:
1. ASUS GeForce GTX 460 768MB (Fermi) ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI
2. EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SE 1GB (Fermi) 01G-P3-1366-TR
3. SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 100315L Video Card with Eyefinity

2. XION XON-CBX01-RD CyborGX
3. RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WB
