Biggest question I have is is this thing going to burn out on me? Do the specs match up with each other (example: Can this motherboard handle the RAM)

That system will run extremely well. i7 960 is a beast and dual 5770's should provide plenty of power for some awesome gaming. iBuyPower wouldn't build that system if that motherboard couldn't handle the RAM or anything like that. For example, they are using a very powerful power supply to help power the system... especially the two graphics cards.

That sounds like a great deal... I was just looking at the 5850's for myself... though I think I'll have to just settle for one 5770 because of my budget range. Good luck with the new computer! :)
