Default Motherboard+PCU

Hello, and I am currently building a PC.


So far I got my self a full tower case
-fans
-hdd
-cd/dvd

nothing important.

Since this is going to be a mid range gaming rig I need to get a decent Video card.

My main concern is PCU & motherboard and power management.

I need ideas for PCU, motherboard & Power supply.

My video card idea would be Radeon HD 5750http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102859

Or go with Radeon HD 4870 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814131140

I would like to know how can I go with dual video card with Radeon.
What my options are and price is.

Thank you. John.

if you're getting one of the new ATI cards then get the 5850 or better. all of the 5700's dont perform very well. you can always crossfire although i would recommend getting 1 really good card at first instead of 2 and then a year or two later getting a second when its cheaper

??? From what ive seen the 5770's = 4870's with direct x 11 capabilities. They also have less power consumption and better cooling as well. Could you please post where you saw that the 5700's don't perform very well?
