I see alot of people blowing money on cards that have aftermarket cooling, and those prices are terrible.

For $1300, I would try for a CrossfireX 5870 build.

I could be wrong here though lol as my first thoughts were a 5870 CrossfireX build should be possible for under or around $1300, as I haven't checked up on some prices. Now that I think about it I might be off by some change.......
4GB of DDR3 Dual Channel and a 7200RPM harddrive would suffice, and wouldn't be much.
Then you could always upgrade to 8 or 16GB of DDR3, and dual channel moves as fast as triple channel.

As long as you could find enough CPU and PSU power to push the 5870's and the other minor things for under $500, twin 5870's faceroll. You would absolutely DESTROY single GPU setups with over-rated tri-channel ram and SSD drives I am seeing in this thread.

Finding a good AMD mobo and CPU to support this much GPU power and also buying RAM and a harddrive might not be possible for under $500...but its damn close.

IMO, close enough to go for it.
i7's are overrated anyways and get matched/rivaled by many CPU's costing much less.

5870 crossfire would be awesome and 5850 crossfire would be still pretty good, but if i can pay for a 5850, i might as well get a 5970 for 600$ because thats less expensive than 2x5870.

I dont need more than 4gb of ram necessarily, because i can always upgrade that when i need it.

an amd processor would be preferred to an intel one because they have a much lower price for the same performance...

Updated OP. please look to it for changes.

decided i want 4gb ram, 5890, and a 1090t or 965 (whatever is better for gaming for the price... future gaming performance(next 1.5 years or so) is important)

That totals up to ~870$ w/ a 965 or 1000$ with the 1090t. That means i need to fit the rest of the computer parts into a 300/430$ budget.

also looking for a cpu cooler (H50 maybe?) that can put me in somewhere very close to 4ghz or higher.

For gaming I would go with a 955 or 965 instead. No real point in a hexacore. Most games now still don't support quads.
