So here is the putes the Captain and I have been working on for me.

AMD 720 black

GIGABYTE GA-MA790X-UD4P Socket AM2+/ AMD 790X/ CrossFireX/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard

OCZ OCZ2RPR10664GK PC2-8500 DDR2 Dual Channel Reaper Series 1066MHz 4G Kit CL 5-5-5-18 Memory

CORSAIR 550w VX Series 12v ATX 80 Plus Certified Power Supply

Cooler Master Centurion 590 ATX Mid Tower Case Black - (RC-590-KKN1-GP​)

Western Digital Caviar Black 500 GB Bulk/OEM Hard Drive 3.5 Inch, 32 MB Cache, 7200 RPM SATA II WD5001AALS

and a HD4890 GPU

I think that is around 760 before rebates and gift card accumulation

going am2+ and ddr2.. yeah, that's a decent amount of savings.... making the 4890 "doable"

nice.

xfire 4770's are faster than a 4890 and less expensive. ;)

DDR2 is fine enough for a fragbox, and while the 4770 is a killer card, two in Crossfire may not scale too great on some games. Especially for a first time builder, one single card will make the process easier to use and tinker with.
