I'm gonna have to agree with GoogleIntel ^ on that one, for almost the same price of a 5830, i'd rather get a gtx 460.

Agree, or drop one of the RAM kits and get a HD5850. Unless you're doing heavy video/image editing or running multiple virtual machines 4GB of RAM is more than enough for the average user.

ASUS P5P77D :: INTEL i5 750@3.6 GHz :: Asus HD4890 :: 4GB Gskill Ripjaw 1600MHz CL7 :: WD Black 1TB :: SSD OCZ Vertex2 60GB :: Corsair 750TX :: LG L204WT :: Windows 7 x64

<<<<<<<<<< If you think I've been helpful in anyway rep me :p

That Thermaltake cpu cooler is a huge waste of money. This cooler will save you a few $$'s and it will perform better. - Cogage TRUE Spirit 120mm CPU Cooler
