:) thank you , so im building a gaming pc that for now can play decent until i can get a real beast by upgrading.
Heres a few questions i have and please answer with a bit of info and i have done some research so please bear with me and im asking please to answer the questions :)
For the motherboard i hear that there's some problems with the north bridge overheating so can this be fixed?
How is this build so far is it a good one?
Is the motherboard overkill and what other boards would you recommend for future upgrades?
If i crossfire the hd5770 will i get good performance?
Is the case too small? ( cant really dish out lots a dollars for one right now)
How is the cooling will it be sufficient if i OC to like 3.6 to.8

Im going to be hardcore gaming soon so when i get some real money ill maybe invest in liquid cooling and do some serious OCing and get a better case.

I just want to get the major build parts out of the way.

So can i commence on buying parts and please add any info you feel sufficient

swap the HDD for the 6Gbs version, its twice as fast and only 10$ more and its 640GB... 

other then that i gusse its ok. i would highly recommend that you get the HD5850 insted of the HD5770 but thats up to you and up to your budget,
