Good Gaming Computer

Will my setup be compatible with each other? Can it run games like BF3, Skyrim and future games on high or ultra quality on a 19'' 720p TV? I will be planning to crossfire the Radeon 7770 so will the 500W be enough?

    Yes it's compatible.

    Yes the PSU is enough for 7770 CrossfireX, but the 600W version is only $5 more and has a $25 rebate.

    This unit is cheaper before rebate and better quality, with 40A on it's +12V rail versus 36A combined on the MSXP 500W:

    An OCed 7770 will do quite well in Skyrim, but it will be tougher for it in BF3.
    BF3 benchmarks with a 7770 with similar clocks to your Sapphire 7770.

    Will the 7770 OC beat the 6850 OC or even the 6870 OC? If all of them were highly overclocked which would give the best performance?
