Video card is good. I have this one myself: - XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
Cheaper after MIR

The ASRock is a low-level ASUS product. May I sugget this? - ASUS M4A87TD EVO AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Everything else works fine.
(Just put a space between the dash and link next time )
