AsRocks M3a770DE is a good one for those chips,
you can save a few pounds/dollars/doubloons by taking the x3 435 instead, still a good little gaming chip
I'd say 5770 is the minumum graphics card to look at, although in the uk the 5830 is cheaper at the moment and better
I'd also invest in surge protectors and ups's for the whole setup if you have frequent powerloss
that way when the power goes, your computers wont

Thanks for fast reply I think you have a point on getting x3 435.

the advantage of getting hd 5770 is the performance hands down it doesn't matter the price difference my problem is the electricity increase of using this card.

here are the GPU that is on my list:

Radeon HD 5830

GeForce GTX 260

Radeon HD 5670 right now this one is the winner in my opinion, but i need to compute how much electricity savings i can get using HD 5670 compared with HD 5770. So that i can make my final decision.

Radeon HD 5770 (I will consider this option if i can compute the extra electricity consumption using this GPU)

Mother Boards the brand that i like:
BIOSTAR
Gigabyte
Asus
MSI

(For Asrock I have a bad experience with this Mobo brand before I don't want to try this again but in fairness maybe they are ok right now. but for me trying it again is not worth the risk. So can you give me another mobo brand that is listed on my list of like mother boards)

If you are looking for low electricity, do not go with the 5830, it actually uses more electricity than the 5850.
