Default Please look at my build before I order...

Hello, this computer is going to be used to play WoW, SC II and other games. Not to hardcore.

MB/CPU: Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

(Is this Mobo good?)

Video Card: Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100283L Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

HDD: Newegg.com - Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
(It's compatible with Mobo right?)

RAM: Newegg.com - G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ
(Are there any better/less expensive ones that perform better?)

Optical Drive: Newegg.com - LG Black 22X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 16X DVD+R DL 22X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache IDE 22X DVD±R DVD Burner - CD / DVD Burners
(The correct drive and will read discs?)

PSU: Newegg.com - CORSAIR HX Series CMPSU-650HX 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
(I was thinking of going for a 750W HX PSU, will 650 be enough?)

Any improvements will be helpful.

I already bought the case and OS 64bit Win7.

It all looks good.

Just a heads up/price saver, the psu is great, as all corsairs, but as its modular youre paying extra. The non-modular one is 30 bucks less... 650tx if youre looking to cheap it up, or add more to the video card.

650W is a great size, I run 2 gpus on a 700W.

So it turns out my Mobo/CPU combo is no longer available. Can you recommend any other great reliable MBs.
Also my RAM is good right?

The combo deal doesn't show-up, the special may be over.

Thanks for the reply!

Out of curiosity how is this Mobo, maybe if the CPU you gave and this Mobo is still around come January I can probably save enough to afford it.

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

well, it has an older chipset and doesn't have features like sata and usb 3.0. although it is a full size board with 2 pci-e slots so that would open up the option of crossfiring 2 cards.

see if you could maybe spring for one of these,
Newegg.com - ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
they kinda give you the best of both.

Cool thanks for the advice man. I have a bad habit of being indecisive and overly paranoid about things (First time builder), and over do my research on parts to try to get the best hardware possible for the buck. I like the Asus one you linked me, hopefully it works people in reviews are a buzz kill. I kind of want an aftermarket Fan too. But if not I guess the stock one will do. I will try to keep this thread alive on my progress if that is cool? Try to order the parts that work around the MB (HD,PSU etc...)

Also there any like the Asus you linked but a bit lower in price?
Another note, the Asus you linked only comes in combo with the 955 X4 Phenom 3.2 one. I was wondering if to go for the 965 and does .2ghz in CPU speed make a significant difference? I would save like 30$
Here is one I found what are your thoughts?

Hopefully I am not annoying on my paranoia .
What I'm afraid of is that the AMD X4 955 or 965 will get deactivated if I wait till Jan. Isn't the Bulldozer or what not coming out then.
