i would look into getting him a 6790

its not much more expensive than the 5770 but WILL scale alot better when xfired. it has better performance on its own as well.
they will go down in price in the future as will any card, and he will be much happier with the increased performance of the 2nd card compared to a second 5770

That might just be barely doable. Thanks, I will look into it.

I guess I could always scrap the SSD and that would free up $100 to get a better GPU, case and Ram. Either way, its going to be very close with what I have to work with.

Any opinions on scrapping the SSD in favor of the better components? I think the SSD is best part of my build, but I had a bigger budget to work with though.

I forgot about the SSD!

Definitely scrap the SSD for a better GPU.

All the SSD will do is make startup and load times faster, it's not going to have much impact on how most programs/games will actually perform.

And if you are going to scrap the SSD. Definitely get a Samsung F3 instead of the hitachi!

Remember he can always get the SSD down the line as well.

SSD's are not friendly to budget builds!

The cheaper board that I listed has 2 PCIe slots so he could possibly add another 5770 to it later on and crossfire it if he isn't happy with it. I figure that 5770s are only going to go down in cost as time goes on and he should be able to easily pick another up if and when the time comes. I am a little concerned over that board as I never see any posts about it here and know nothing about it.
The GTX 460 is nicer for gaming, they oc well and it wont hurt your budget too bad.

I would get rid of the SSD in your build if I were in your position. Get a Samsung F4 or WD Black drive instead. That will free up about 50 bux then you can afford a little better video card. Nothing wrong with the 5770 though. I own a couple and they are the best bang for the buck right now if you get them on sale. Especially if you crossfire them.

Just curious as to what makes the F3 the clear cut choice here? The Hitachi is $10 less and all of the stats seem similar to me. Same speeds, etc. I really didn't the HDD would make much of a difference either way, so I went with the cheapest option. Its only $10, but I might need that $10...

The Samsung is slightly faster in just about all area's and on average it's a lot more reliable. It's more about the reliability really, which is probably the most important thing with HDD's.

I just think it's worth the extra 10 bucks, but its up to you in the end.

Ok, so I scrapped the SSD and switched the GPU to a 6850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161348

Changed the Ram to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231427

Switched the mobo to http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128487

My total, including shipping and tax now stands at $672.24. So I have $27 left over, but I forgot to include an optical drive. Most of them are around $20 so that will exhaust the budget.

How is look now and thanks to everyone for their input on the changes. All of them are appreciated and rep has been added to everyone

I just added http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827136216. That brings me $692.17. Your advice on the F3 is duly noted, but there just isn't room for it unless I drop the GPU from a 6850 to a 6790.
