Ok budget is around $700 and this is what I came up with thanks to alot of help from you guys, just wanted to have it checked again to make sure I didnt screw anything up.

case: Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Computer Cases
HD: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

From what I've read that rosewill was previously marketed as a 650w, but it couldn't perform that well so they bumped it down to 630w. I'd recommend this corsair Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-450VX 450W ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies After MIR its the same price, but its much higher quality. Never heard of any problems from corsair PSUs. Could also looks at OCZ, they make decent budget PSUs.

Rest looks solid.

Yeah I ran into that as well, but IMO if the corsair is the same (took me 5 tries to spell that right....) price you might as well go with it. Rosewill psus in general aren't the greatest, they're just a newegg brand sort of. Plus you only have 1 PCI-express slot with that mobo, so you won't be going xfire, and the corsair will be plenty to power the 5770 and a number of hdds no problem.

also a less expensive option than both the rosewill and corsair but still good, this combo with the antec 300 and an antec 550w psu. will be plenty to power that rig.

and this combo with a different xfx 5770 and 4gigs of ram will save you a little money

Ok I think I am going to go with the 2 combo's that muffin listed.

Just curious...what are the differences between the ram and gpu I originally chose and those?

Also, that PSU is not "80 plus certified" not sure if thats bad or what?

Thanks again for all the help.


edit: baih777, I just want to order everything from newegg as one order, thanks though.

Yes that antec combo is really good, always forget about it since they bum the .ca site out of it. :/
