could you please post links to everything? its hard to give advice without knowing exactly what you're planning to get. the 5770 is a single card while the 4890 is a dual graphics card. the 5770 also supports directx 11. go for windows 7. and i'd go for this RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104140

The HD 4890 is a little faster (the HD 5770 is around the same speed as an HD 4870 which is ~10% slower than the 4890) but...
The HD 5770 uses less power, is more compact, and more importantly, supports DX11.

What do you mean by overclocked RAM? Are you going to overclock it yourself? You don't really need anything more than 1333 ATM, but if 1600 and 1333 are the same price...

the corsair ddr3 1333 and 1600 are the around the same the price but the motherboards support 1333 and 1600(OC) is it just safer to get 1333?
