    nothing wrong with the 460, but I'd suggest changing to a HD6850 for later Crossfire, basically the same price:

    Even though its not in a combo, getting this motherboard saves a ton of money, which still allowing crossfire (8x/8x is good enough compared to 16x/16x):

    get the 955 instead of the 965. increment one number in the bios, and the 955 is a 965.

    Get this PSU, even though its not in a combo, saves a ton of money and can handle crossfired 6850s
