That looks like a gaming rig right there, if i was you, i would get the 5850, about 5-10% differance from the 5870 and £100 cheaper, with that, you could always buy another ssd and raid them up. But if money isnt a problem, get the 5870. Also, thought abou 2 4890's in cf, they beat the 5870 by a mile if you aint bothered about dx11?

thanks for the reply,money is not a problem as such,would prefer dx11 route as this is my final build as not got much time anymore to build pc's,just want a kick-ass gaming pc to last a while,would two 5850's be better than one 5870?

also i am right in thinking my psu is got plenty of power for cross-fire?

The 5850's in crossfire will destroy a single 5870, if money isn't that tight i would definitely go for the crossfire option as the performance gain will be well worth it.

Also the psu will easily power the crossfire option :D
