that motherboard does not support crossfire.
it's a nice combo build for the money.
don't forget you'll need an optical drive.

GIGABYTE GA-990XA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

looks like a solid board.

if you take a minute to read the product description you'd know that the processor you chose above includes a heatsink and fan.

@ superdhigh, please don't double post, if you have something else to add to the conversation and no one has posted a reply since your last post (within a 24 hr. period), please use the edit button (looks like a pencil) to add it to your previous post.

The second one has a better GPU, but a smaller HDD. And it's out of stock. So I would go for the first one, and put a 6850 in it as your upgrade. Though, I can't seem to figure out what motherboard that build has, so I don't know if the motherboard supports Crossfirex. The GPU does, but the mobo is up in the air.

The 1st one has 4GB (1x4GB) of DDR3 1333 MHz memory and the 2nd one has 8GB (2x4GB) of DDR3 1333 MHz.

Both motherboards have (1) PCI-e (X16) slot so CrossFireX is out.

I would go with the 2nd one if it was in stock.

Sorry, didn't notice the RAM difference. That's what I thought about the motherboard. I agree with you on the second one
