I like it., build is similar to mine.

Don't get the XFX 5770's, you might get a PCB version.
I have personally seen someone get one.
Go with a nice Sapphire.

Everything else looks like it will melt together nicely.
Good CPU choice, serviceable case...and 64Bit 7....youre on the right track.

I think you can save a little money on the PSU but if you want to CrossfireX two 5890's or something crazy in the future, you might need a big PSU...but 2 5770's hardly draw anything.

Other then that thing looks like a beast.

If you order the AMD Phenom II 965, it's currently 189.99 and you get a $10 gift card. So you would save and get better. WIN WIN.

You have have the 955 listed, but the 965 is what you linked to. Do you want the 965, or should the link have gone to the 955?

I would get this RAM instead. Same specs, $20 cheaper.

You may want to check out these combos:

Antec 1200 + Antec 1000W PSU: $294
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.336293

Windows 7 + Asus Crosshair III: $289
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.332651

AMD 955 + 5770: $322
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.325772

If you go with all these, you save $32 and you can use that for a CPU cooler since you didn't post one.
