So I first fell for A10 Richland. Then it works better with 8GB Ram, so got G. Skill DDR3 *2133. Then came big decision....to dual graphics or not with a pretty fast APU. Well dual graphics I did with Sapphire HD6670 1Gb. Why not HD7750? There's got to be new dual graphics card coming out that will not bottleneck APU. Now for a MOBO. Hands down love this ASUS A88X-Pro motherboard and OC 4-Way Optimization software. Or can just flip a switch. Built on heat sink for mobo. The DIYPC Skyline-07 full case is fantastic. A total of 7 fans come included. With 4 optional water cooler holes. Plus the HDD removable slot on top. So many great products. All compatible and no bottlenecks. Works like a dream Gamer and PC in one. Will be adding Samsung SSD next week, can't wait.

You could've saved money by going with Windows Home Premium instead of ultimate and gotten a stronger video card like a 7770 like I did. Works wonders I love it. Hell with the money you save by switching OS's, you could've got something even better than the one I listed. Other wise I don't see anything else wrong :p Enjoy your build! Upgrade that video card when you can.

You're right about pricing on Ultimate. Is the 7770 you have in a Dual Graphics set up with an APU? Asking because worry about bottleneck or will ASUS AI Suite 3 optimizer or AMD Catalyst take care of that on its own? I just went with 6670 due to the fact it is recommended for Dual Graphics with the A10-6800K.

I built my computer with intentions of it just being a learning experience for me until I learn enough about computers to be able to build one completely outstanding with things like overclocking abilities and SLI but at this current time, I honestly don't know enough about Dual Graphics or bottlenecking to be able to tell you a coherent answer :/ I'm still learning at this point so there are areas where I've just not gotten around to learning about.

I get the feeling that an HD 7770 would destroy a10 6670 xFire but didn't find a performance test to prove it. However I believe that 7750 a10 xFire is working now. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1688717/review-amd-a10-5800k-7750-msi-working-dual-graphics.html

I'm doing a similar build just like yours. Instead I excluded the OS (I'm a pirate, yeah).

MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX FM2 Kingston Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 (Intending to overclock to near max) Rosewill Line-M MicroATX Mini Tower Corsair 430W ATX12V

Haven't built yet, just waiting a few days in case I find something better. I love your build though, could you try running Dark Souls? It's a somewhat CPU intensive and badly optimized game (just install DSFix, solves most problems like 30fps cap) and I intend on running it on my system hopefully ;).
