You might want to look at CrossfireX or SLI for gaming (dual-video cards). The video card you have now does not support either of those technologies. You can get a video card that does support SLI or CrossfireX and then add a second video card later on. If you do that however I'd recomend getting a 700+ watt power supply. Download the users manual for the motherboard you choose and make sure it supports the other components you choose. Everything looks compatible though.

Hi.

Before venturing into dual graphics I strongly advice you read this article. It is a little long, > http://www.tomshardw...-crossfire-faqs Any questions?

Leave the selecting of the PSU until you have everything else finalised.

I agree with the choices from Phillipower2.

Here is a review for the video card, also does game playing comparisons with the Radeon HD 5750 and indirectly with the Radeon HD 5770 > http://www.hardwares...d-Review/1095/1 Your favourite game may be on the list.

I would change the blue 1TB HDD to the Black Edition > http://www.newegg.co...N82E16822136284

Here is a link to the Asus Mobo product page. Check your selected RAM is on the list. Download the 2 files. You can also browse the specifications. > http://usa.asus.com/...ATvwCy0OZLGNWwp


I would create a wish list on Newegg, keeps a running total and only one link in your post. Make sure to thoroughly check dates on any rebate offers
