That PSU is overkill, all you need to crossfire 5770s is 600w.
Where is your HDD? If you get getting one get a spinpoint f3.

Just noticed the HDD missing. :)

Why spinpoint over WD for example? I was going with a

Western Digital Caviar Black WD6401AALS 640GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

You'd suggest this?

SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

I've used Antec before:

The difference in price between 650 and 750 is just a couple bucks so I'd rather have more than less in that regard.

The HDD prices are also just a couple bucks and with the samsung I get '360' gb more as well. I've only had one WD fail on me ever so I'm satisifed with their reliability.

I'll swap in the other memory.
