hmmm... i think i can improve your rig in a few ways. however, i assumed you don't need the OS, as you neglected to list one above. if you do, please say so, as i'll have to redo my build.
ok, so, i came up with 2 options. first, a crossfire capable board, which has a 5770 (slower) but that quad-core you wanted. it's got the better mobo, IMO, though, and while slower in games now, you can add another 5770 for cheap later. comes to $710.17
in my cart.
there's also this combo with the single card, which will be more powerful now. i took it to consider you'd not be going double card any time soon, so just went mATX to save a bit of money. don't fret though, as the 785G chipset is still really good. the X3 is also not going to slouch, and should get some good headroom once you strap a proper cooler onto her. of course, i will justify this rig by saying that a gaming rig is more dependent on the GPU, so you should get faster framerates.
it's up to you to decide which way you'd like to swing.
if you buy before the 4th, you can save $10 off the HDD using the code - EMCYVNX53. i haven't reflected this in the pic shown above though. it came up to $705.77
in my cart shipped
i would have done an SLi-capable build, but frankly, i'm not too comfortable recommending one, simply because i don't know the good SLI boards from the bad ones.
hope that helps
