Good catch. Why that card instead of a 5850?

lol. so many replies. I said i was not going to upgrade my main machine. That's not the only computer i have .

On the topic of the ssd's. They cost me $496+tax ($124 each). One reason i didn't go with a 5850 was due to availability of XFX parts. Also the primary use of this is not gaming.

Nothing wrong with a 5770, fast, cool and quiet. Nice build thus far
