    The GTX275 is actually a placeholder for a 5850 ;)

    $480 for a 64GB MLC drive?? Ouch..


    That 275GTX is really a bad buy right now.. Unless you already have it?

    Switch the 770 board for a Crossfire capable 790GX or 790X motherboard, ditch that 275GTX and get 2*HD5770 instead. Performance is a bit better than a single HD5850, and more than that in the long run.

    Also, that $140 Corsair is a bit of an overkill, for a system with a single graphics card. It's a PSU that'll last you "a lifetime", though.

    He'd be better off with a 5850 because it's cheaper lol. + no crossfire issues.

    I'm not a big fan of the 770 chipset, especially that particular motherboard. Best AM3 board out there right now under a hundred bucks is the Asus 785g Evo.

    Plus one on that. All 785g boards seems good. :)

    My board sucks because it doesn't do 16+4x CF which performs like crap? :cry:

    Anyways this board is just to hold me until I either go for the 790XTA-UD4P, or wait longer for the new chipset.
