The link you gave doesn't work, I think you made a wish list, but you have to make it public for anyone to see it and that takes some time I believe. Normally you would list everything like this...

Copy and paste the web address to the individual part into the reply box of your next reply. Below is an example...

EXAMPLE CPU
http://www.newegg.co...5-224-_-Product

EXAMPLE MOTHERBOARD
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813188067

EXAMPLE RAM
http://www.newegg.co...5-288-_-Product

ASUS and Gigabyte makes some nice motherboards on the AMD side (intel as well). I really like eVGA if you go with an Intel processor.

Yes, the 5970 would blow the two 5830's together out of the water. Something like the 5870 or above, you will be very happy, with just one.

As for the hard drives, getting something smaller and faster like a 60gb SSD (Solid State Drive) or a 320gb or so Western Digital Cavier black series with 32mb cache as the main hard drive for your Operating System and games, then get something like the Western Digital Green Series 1TB for storage of your pictures, music, etc. Don't worry about how you set that up for now, it's easy and I can show you later.

Get that list to me and we can go from there. And, if I were you, I would look into something like the i7-920, very fast processor... AMD's Phenom II series of processors are very very good for the money so that is a good choice as well, but the i7's and such are faster. It's not all about clock (ghz) speed... other things come into play as well.

P.S. And remember, just try to stay around the money you are wanting to spend, and I'll make suggestions... nothing is set in stone. If you are looking to spend $1500 or so, then you/I will build a very nice computer. I promise. :)

Great case as this is the same one I built my new system in back in January. Love it :D

Same with the HD as i put 2 of these bad boys in mine along with a 500 gig partitioned 3 times with 3 different OS's installed.

I'm partial to the Corsair memory but Mushkin is also a great memory.

Cpu is a personal preference and nothing wrong at all with what you are looking at.
Do you have a mobo in mind yest for that speed demon cpu?

Not yet, the only things ive considered are the ones I posted,a nd my budget is 2000 dollars, and has to include shipping / no keyboard / no monitor.

I had trouble deciding the motherboard since I didnt really know what I was reading, I plan on making upgrades in the future (like adding additional hard drive storage, maybe even ram, and an extra graphics card later. so id like something that wont be out of date 10 minutes after i buy it, or would atleast leave me room for expansion. Also i am not sure how to pick a fan system (the one that cools the cpu) because I read into liquid cooling and id prefer to get a pretty decent liquid cooling set. I also am curious if its possible to have my graphics cards liquid coold too? since I read the radaeons ill be buying can run hot

In other words does the cpu come with a fan or is it just the cpu?

no , not really. I was just thinking that liquid cooling was exponentially better than a normal fan. im reading about heat sinks vs cooling now. I was just curious as to if it were possible to get sort of a ... universal liquid cooling that would apply to my processor and the radeon graphics card?

actually does everything I have here seem like enough? I mean if the "stock" coolers are fine... I think i should just go with this build for 1900. ( i really love how that motherboard looks, wish i could make a clear PC case)

What about a OS?
Are you looking at Win7 and if so 32 bit or 64 bit?
