Just more one question:
First, would I be able to hook this up to my 46" Samsung LCD? I know the motherboard has HDMI input, but I want to know if it would look good.
Anyway thanks again for all the help, I look forward to hearing more great advice
Woops, just noticed this.
No, I don't think it would work from the motherboard because the i5 - 750 doesn't have an integrated GPU, so the output ports on the motherboard wouldn't display anything.
(i5 - 750's were developed before Intel started integrating GPU's on to the CPU chip, so i5 - 750's were developed for the 1156 P55 motherboards.
The H55, H57 motherboards are for the newer CPU's that Intel developed with integrated GPUs on the chips.
Such as the i3 - 530, i3 -540, i5 - 660, i5 - 650)
HOWEVER, you can
use the HDMI output on the 5770 and everything will work fine and YOU CAN use the LCD TV.
