Good to me. Though I will say you don't need 750w of power for that PC.

If I lower it down were talking about a 10-20 dollar difference....Then when i want to do a crossfire config I have to buy a new one and I need more power....

I plan on getting a SSD crossfire more ram and another HDD later on...

Thanks for all the help...

Also my friend said amazon is horrible with packing computer parts is that true?

They shipped my JBL 2.1 in the original box it came in. Luckily, inside JBL packed them pretty good. If that is any indication.

If you plan to Crossfire then why not just get a beefier single GPU? Makes more sense considering driver and game support lacks bad for AMD cards. IIRC 5970 still doesn't run well in Crossfire mode for some games and it's an old card.

If you plan to set up multiple GPU's I would just go with Nvdia. Way better driver support imo.

I'd also suggest an SSD, get a 120 GB + Samsung or Intel. Will knock a hole in your wallet but be well worth it. If you are not planning on overclocking you can put off buying a CPU cooler if money is an issue. SSD's are the best thing since dual core.
