Slightl budget gaming build. Thoughts?

Sapphire Vapor-X HD5770 x2 in Crossfire

Raidmax Hybrid 730W

A-Data Gaming Series DDR3 1600 2x2GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820211409

Don't bother recommending an alternative PSU unless its the same price and a better brand(ie Antec, Corsair, OCZ). As long as that 730W raidmax can handle the 5770s in crossfire with a little bit of overclocking headroom for the i5, I don't see the point in spending 60+ extra dollars on a same wattage psu. My current raidmax has been nothing but reliable.

Will that PSU be enough to crossfire the 5770s and OC the i5 a little bit?

Thanks.

Looks good. I would try and get more monet and change the 5770s for GTX 460s...Check benchs, the 460s are sweet and can OC like a champ

You could get two of these and still fit them into your budget and your power supply would EASILY be enough.

That would be much more powerful in games and each one is honestly about as powerful as a gtx 460 despite what people say.

EDIT: Also this ram is better http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-285-_-Product

a branded high quality 550 watt could handle 5770's in cross fire and if you want to leave even more head room get a really good 650watt power supply. just because one raidmax power supply was good for you it doesn't necessarily mean other ones will not blow up.
I suggest posting a thread in the power supply section for more info.

Most will troll about 460 and how perfect they are.
It's limited to SLI, so no further upgrade. It beats by a small GTX470 that will run single and will be upgradable (sli or 3sli)
Not forgetting that not every game runs with sli.
So no, sli 460 is a bad idea.
Either 5770CF or 470.
From what i have, i can't see that i would need more power in any game and if in future i will need that, i'll go SLI since i'll be able not like dual 460.
5770CF = 340$
460 SLI (1GB) 460
470 single = 300 $

can you use proper sentences, don't understand completely what you're saying there.
but I don't see what the point is to get 460's, s/he has a great build there with the 5770's, except for the power supply

Repped...

I can stand all you people who think the GTX 460 is perfect.

Its not that powerful, its overpriced and it can only do double SLI.

A GTX 470 is much better. It will easily be strong enough to pretty much max out every game in existance currently, and when its not enough, you can add another and another..
