-Howdy folks. First gaming rig purchase. the details below show what i am shooting for, $1200 budget sans monitor. i *think* i have a dual hard drive, linked dual video card build here, but since i've never seen such an animal before i want to make sure that's what this is, right power supply, compatible components, etc. any help appreciated.

Thanks in advance, have a good weekend.

That is a terrible build , and IMO very unprofessional of the builders .

The motherboard DOES NOT properly support crossfire . Sure it has two slots that can accept graphics cards but one of them only runs at a reduced speed [ x4 instead of x16]. That means the 6770's , which are pretty weak anyway , will not be able to work well together .

IMO read a few tutorials online about how to build a computer and assemble your own . For that money you will get something with at least twice the gaming power for that price .

-I've been reading some tutorials, and i feel familiar enough with the actual labor involved to do it myself, but i obviously have no clue when it comes to components.

Back to the drawing board, thanks again.
