Oh u didn't mention a 720p monitor!-- well in that case u would probably be ok with just 1 radeon 7770 it should net u around 50 fps if iam not mistaken>? .......I use to game on crossfired radeon 6570s ( really weak card) but I had a 1366x768 monitor so they did quite well actually! ...............If u plan to step-up your resolution in the future to a 1920x1080 4 example I was barely cutting 8 fps with a single 6570 so think ahead what u plan to do so u don't blow your money for nothing then have to start over again like me lol

Go for a 8*** series of CPU, they cost what they are, you will like the 2 + cores and for the GPU, go for something bigger than that 7770, for a little bit more, you pc will last longer, that means is cheaper in the long run, for 600-700$ you can get something pretty awesome, are you going to buy in newegg?

Watch out I heard there have been some issues with buying motherboards from new-egg ! ..... Ive personally bought a couple video cards from them and never had any issues at all, but u do see some horror stories when it comes down to motherboards omg! The pins were beant when it arrived now they wont take it back! My motherboard wont fire up and new-egg is saying I broke it!.....It just keeps going and going! I would advise you get your motherbaod and cpu at a place like Micro center,tiger direct, U can actually go down there and examine your motherboard if u see something wrong u don't buy it or ask for another! .....Don't order a motherboard from new-egg if u listen to me
Iam just trying to look out for you and save u some headaches incase u happen to get a bad mobo- with places like micro center they usually will exchange the product right on the spot so u have no downtime whatsoever!

That is where I bought mine and I had no issues getting a new one from them, as it turns out it wasn't even the motherboard it was the CPU. It was the 1st RMA I have done with them because everything I have bought has worked perfectly. Maybe that's why they did not give me any hastle because I don't do it alot. I even feel bad about the one RMA I did do. It could be because I am an Eggexpert reviewer for them too.

I never had issues with them either I was just saying some people on new-egg were complaining about there motherboards not working upon receving them- (ASUS ROG) to be specific was the main one! .............For someone like myself I live 2 blocks from Westmont Microcenter they match or beat new-eggs deals 0n cpus and mobos, I would much rather go through them incase something is wrong I can just walk over there and exchamge my item done deal!........... Theres nothing wrong with ordering from new-egg I was just stating some users feedback 4 u that's all. thumb.gif
Orderd 2 video cards from them and they were very professional and on time as promiced. Added bonus when u shop microcenter u get a cpu/mobo bundle deal the prices are ALOT better then new-egg,but microcenters gpu selection isn't that great lol
