The HD4870 is easily the winner in performance but not neccesarily bang for buck. The best price/performance parts out right now imo are

E5200
UD3P
2x HD4830

That will give you the best performance in games and best price/performance ratio

Oh and I voted ASUS, simply because it's 1gb rather the 512mb, depends what res you are planning on playing at though.
Would you say that 4x1 is more efficient, even if it is more stressful on the MB?
Else equal, the Q9550 is out of my current price range
If only my current drives on my dead rig were compatible with the motherboard.

It will be cheaper than getting 2x 4850 ,you'll have the option of quadfire(?), and as well be faster than a single 4870
Also if still want to get a 4870 get this one , it's alot cheaper and i believe it's better than asus http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150352
or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150339
And are you gonna get another PSU or use the one that is in your new case?
And a price drop is coming soon
Those reviews are all sketch, imo. How much faith do you guys put into them?
I was planning to use the PSU in the new case, yes. Better price from my initial browsing, and it is good enough on paper.
Price drop on what? Nature of the industry to have price drops. New tech soon, price drops soon.

Those are suspiciously cheap, I'll have to consider them
The E5200 is tempting.
Nice to see I'm getting the UD3P anyways.
I'm a skeptic about bridging.

Thanks everyone for the input. This was a wonderful cannonball splash of an entrance into this forum. I'm looking for a more decisive CPU vote, so I'm going to make a new thread like the polltard that I am.

I'll be seeing you guys around!

Just kidding. I've decided I'm going to go with the Q6600 due to the importance of the CPU.

GIGABYTE GA-EP45-UD3P
ASUS 1GB Radeon HD 4870
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800
Seagate Barracuda 250GB 3.0Gb/s

Hi guys. Short revive. Do you think between the ASUS graphics card and the other parts the case's 585W power supply will be enough? Am I going to have a problem there?

I had assumed some one would've noticed that by now, but I might as well ask anyways.
