Hello and Welcome to the forums. :)

Before I can make some suggestions, exactly how big is your budget and are you going to have a 32 or 64 bit OS?

Also, none of your links are clickable so you might want to fix them so they are easier to view.

I fixed the links. I believe I am going to have a 64 bit OS and my budget is around 600-700$.

Alright, well that case, memory, and hdd look good, but I am going to make some suggestions on the other components.

Mobo - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813131381
Here you have support for Crossfire and from the reveiws it is easy to OC.

(2) GFX Cards - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814131155
For only about 40 more bucks, you can run two of these in crossfire and you will get at least a 30 FPS boost from your previous card.
Info HERE

CPU - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16819103300
Might have a smaller L2 cache, but has a faster HT speed and is easily OC.

CPU Cooler - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835185125
Way better CPU cooler and will enable you to OC alot better.

PSU - http://www.newegg.co...N82E16817139006
Plenty of power for your crossfire setup and everything else.

Total = $672

Let me know if you have any questions or anything else, don;t hesitate to ask!

How much does HT speed affect CPU performance?

HyperTransport is the front side bus of AMD CPU's. It is basically how many commands the CPU can handle in one second; the bigger the nubmer, the faster the CPU.

The 7750 is more energy efficient, has a more efficient manufacturing process (65 nm > 90 nm), and you can OC way better than the 6000+.
