ive got a link for you for the extrem power supply calculator

http://www.extreme.outervision.com/PSUEngine

im not happy with the power supply you choose it seems a bit too cheap and its not 80+ certificated i no from experiance that a cheap poersupply will not last very long if you are using a decent gpu the last powersupply i bought was a cheap 750w psu that lasted all off 16hrs befor it blew the current powersupply im now using has lasted me a year so far with no problems and this is a new build it is in now

use the link ive given you and put all your details for this new build your doing into it also add things that you might add to it in the futer like extra harddrives blue ray burner ect once you don that press calculate and it will give you the amount off whatts you will need to run your build

once you don that tell us the totale and we will find you a good power supply for the build to keep you in budget

sorry i cant help on motherboards but i dont no enought about amd systems

get a gigabyte 990fx ud3 mobo which would be the best bang for your buck . though it doesnt supports 3 gpus so If you never plan to use more than two graphics cards and/or don’t overclock your CPU very far, then you can use that surplus like on a dedicated audio card or try upgrading another part of your system. If you are after CrossfireX or SLI support then the GA-990FXA-UD3 is within your budget, then there is no reason to try to save any more on lesser 990X series boards. The extra features should ensure you get your money’s worth.Its a decent board plenty of Overclocking features easily done and simple BIOS.

I have put in Asus M5A78L/USB3, AMD 760G, S AM3+, DDR3, SATA II - 3Gb/s, RAID SATA, PCIe 2.0 (x16), ATX which seems to be more of a budget for me..

Now my grand total is about 420, i have another 130 pound to get a case, a power supply and a hard drive...

In fact the card here is the 7870 XT which is inbetween the 7870 and the 7950. smile.gif

Yea unless you plan to upgrade your monitor soon I would go with the 7850 which will be plenty at this resolution.

I'd recommend the Gigabyte:
