New rebuild advice.

Hey all, I'm in the market to rebuild, but I have been out of the game for a while. My budget is about $550 before shipping and I have created a list of items I need on newegg. I feel fairly confident with this build, but I would like a second opinion on stuff like the motherboard and the RAM. I chose this board because of the crossfire capability which I will be using in the near future. Please let me know if this is something you would be interested in if you were in the market:

Thank you for your time.

    I would swap the cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ or 212 EVO, but other than that you'll be fine with the parts you've selected.

    Any GPU upgrades?
  3. Well currently I have a 6870 and it does pretty great. I'm just planning on getting a second one sometime in the future. Unfortunately everywhere stopped selling them, so I will have to find one on amazon or ebay, but it will be cheaper and I have seen that they crossfire very well. I'm coming from a phenom II x3 720 with 3 gigs of ddr2, so this is going to be quite the difference in performance.
