Now the things I'd like to accomplish with this build are as follows:
Overclock to 4.5GHz+
Plan to buy a more powerful PSU if I ever crossfire.
Keep noise level below ~25-30dBA.
That's all folks, but I'm looking forward to any recommendations you have for me!
Those video cards are just a little out of my price range - but interesting that you recommend nvidia over ATI.
As for the motherboards, ASRock is the "cheaper" brother board of Asus, and I haven't heard much about Gigabyte.
Thanks for the PSU suggestions, the corsair ones are pricy though, I'm thinking I might need to go with a seasonic.
Thanks for the PSU tips! Glad to hear that the 5770 doesn't take much power. That seasonic is looking like a much better buy then the raidmax. Shame it doesn't have blue LED's though, but I think I can get by without those.
