Thread Starter 
For a huge go big budget, try at 850 shipped before rebates. Lol @ how little I have. And I'll definitely reconsider the PSU, my old one my friend bought me a while ago lasted for a loooong time. Need something to last about 3 more years till budget can afford something completely different.

Thanks again for all the help. Im interested to see some bigger budget builds I could -maybe- best afford or at the worst a 650.

Ha, I didn't know your budget was so high man. I just wanna second the Phenom II x4 955, as it is the one I upgraded to and I got it to 4GHz with no effort and stock cooling. Oh and to be honest, unless your going to be running quad crossfire, don't get a 790/890FX, I got one and I am kinda disappointed with it, because it just isn't necessary at all (I got a 5970 and never used more than one of my 4 PCI-e x16 slots). Also, 790FX/GX boards have H/W raid for the most part, 890FX/GX boards don't, so if you are planning a raid configuration, go old school.

Well, pending how books and such go, I might be able to afford a 850 budget shipped if I work at it. Trying my best to keep it under 700 though, but if I'm convinced it's legitimately worth it then I might consider something different.

The build I specced is pretty solid, you could go with a bit faster of a video card by sacrificing the CPU or vice versa. Or you could put the extra budget money towards a larger hard disk, or larger PSU. However that PSU is going to be more than adequate for any single GPU system.

I'd go for a F3 1TB if you can cath them for $55-60

But instead of the 500 gig WD get this:

And I'd get a GTX 460 768 instead of a 5770

Not too shabby, not a fan of the ram colors lol, but so long as it performs as its specified thats all that matters.

Looks like your back to the 790x board though. Its not a bad chipset, it just lacks some of the newer features.

With $600 you should be able to rock a Phenom II x4, non-generic memory, something better than the Corsair CX crap and a video card of the same or higher tier. Or at least, you could do that a few weeks/months ago, but those deals are sadly gone.
Not that there aren't any good deals, Superbiiz has that Samsung F3 1TB for $20 less after a promo code, you can get something much better than the 500CX for $59.99 (i.e. Antec NEO ECO 520C), etc.
