You could look into OCZ's lineup of ram. However, both G.Skill and Mushkin are very reputable brands as well. OCZ tends to be a little cheaper for the same performance, though. As for your idea for the 5770, I would suggest trying to save enough for a 5850. Granted, it is ~100 dollars more, but the difference in performance is well worth the price jump, imo. With overclocking, it can come really close to the 5870

I'm considering buying a 5770 for now and then getting another for Crossfire in the future. As for RAM I'm considering Mushkin or G.Skill 1600MHz.

Anyone got any extra suggestions for me? Thanks
If i were to go it again it would be OCZ Platinum

I'm overclocking a VisionTek 4890 OC to 1040/1145 stable with the ThermZone stock cooling and @ 55% fan speed it never goes over about 55c. They are $220 @ MicroCenter, and would be great in CF with two. I'm planning on picking up a second one.

I like the OCZ Platinum's I'm using for RAM, 7-7-7-21-28 stable at 1680Mhz - 1.75v, and I'm sure if I tried it would go further. $109. @ MicroCenter.

Just a suggestion. I'm happy with these, good value and great performance.

Thanks for the input. I took a look at some OCZ memory and wondered which you guys would consider:
OCZ Reaper? OCZ Platinum? or OCZ Platinum 1.65V? Do I benefit much if I go with a lower voltage ram?

As for the 5850/4890, I would consider it but my budget is nearly done. At this point I feel I'll be lucky if I can get my hands on a 5770, which should definately handle all my gaming needs for now versus my old 9800 GT. Besides I've read some good reviews about 5770's in Crossfire, which I will probably attempt in the future when my budget increases and the prices go down. Thanks alot for the help.

Phase and that's it???? LOL

Shouldn't it be more like 5.7-6GHz then?

Hey guys, new member of the club here. I've been lurking in this thread for a long time (since about page 20?) and I figured that since I've finally got the monster running, I should at least sign up for the forums and thank you all for the awesome help you've me and others like me. So thanks everyone!

@Regamaster
I've got these G.Skills 7-7-7-24 @1600 at stock volts. I recommend them.

Regarding HardwardMonitor, does anyone know what TEMPIN 0, 1, and 2 are? I'm guessing NB, SB, and ambient? I'm just webbing and folding atm, CPU cores are all at 37c, TempIn0 is 40c, TempIn1 is 38, TempIn2 is 33.

Also, what all do the CPU OPN and SN tell you? Mine are

OPN: HDZ955FBGIBOX
SN: 9265072H90082

I know the 90082 means my chip was fairly close to the center of the die, but what does that mean? Is there anything printed on the heat spreader that can't be extrapolated from those numbers (like the CACYC that some of you were discussing a few pages back?) Where else should I look to find this kind of info?

Also, for the lulz, I tried this the other day. http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=805557 It blue screened about 10 seconds after I clicked 'validate,' but I was able to boot win7-64 at 4.0ghz

Welcome to OCN!
TMPIN0 is CPU, TMPIN2 is Motherboard, and I am not sure what TMPIN1 is. On Everest, TMPIN1 used to be labeled auxillary. On the new Everest, there is a new North Bridge sensor that does not match up with TMPIN1.

90082 does mean that it was close to the center of the waffer and is most likely a better chip. (Higher NB speeds) the CACYC is on the heat spreader.
Just above the SN on the left

No. but definitely doable on LN2. However, phase is near the bottom of the totem pole when it comes to the extreme cooling hierarchy. 5GHz is definitely a VERY VERY VERY difficult task on a single stage.
