Default Undecided MOBO and Cooler

i dont know which one to get if MSI P55-GD65 or ASUS (but which one?) and Gigabyte (but which one?) i am going to run an i5 on the motherboard with 4GB G.Skill RAM. Also gonna put ATI 4890 or 5770 crossfire (which one should I go with 4890 or 5770?)

Regarding the GPUs, in my opinion, you should buy a single more powerful card instead. For instance I would buy the HD5870, although is $20 expensier than two HD4890, and buy a second one later on.

Regarding the mobo I would buy the Asus P7P55D Pro Newegg.com - ASUS P7P55D PRO LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
or Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD4 Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-P55M-UD4 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
I prefer the Asus brand but it's personal preference, gigabyte is as good as Asus.

I'm no expert in after market heatsinks so wait for someone's opinion.

looks like they both perform about the same

i think either one will be a great choice

or maybe you can go for the H50 just for bragging rights

The Noctua is a good heatsink

This is also a good heatsink but you'll need to order a 120mm fan to go with it
