hi, Im building a computer for Christmas and ive been shopping around on Novatech (UK website) for a nice computer i would like to build. It will be a high performance computer for under £1300(I hope)

Can anyone recommend my build?

AMD Phenom II X6 1075T Black Edition Six Core 3.0GHz Socket AM3

Asus Crosshair IV Formula AMD 890FX (Socket AM3) Motherboard

Corsair Dominator GT 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600C7D

Coolermaster GX 650W Power Suppply

Western Digital VelociRaptor 150GB 16MB Cache Hard Disk Drive Serial ATA <4.2ms 10,000rpm

Western Digital Caviar Green Power 1TB 64MB Cache Hard Disk Drive SATAII 300MB/s <8.9ms

Those are the main parts, i need some questions though as im unsure on some things

Q1. I am unsure about what graphics card to use, Crossfire or a single high performance one?
Using neither two ATI Radeon 5770 1024MB GDDR5 or one Asus ATI Radeon 5870 Stalker Edition
(Low price v High performance?)

Q2 Can my motherbord handle two sets of Corsair RAM? im thinking about future upgades to another set of sticks giving me 6G of RAM

It will be going into a Corsair Graphic Series 600T Mid Tower Case with a Corsair H50 Liquid CPU Cooler and a Samsung DVD drive

The monitor will be my JVC HD TV (32") and im wondering if this computer is powerful enough to power it without it overheating, I will be playing games (like that crysis everyone talks about)

I hope you can help, thank you!
