This is my first build and I have questions about my build.
Are all the components compatible with each other?
Will they work okay together?
Can this run Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit?
I eventually plan to crossfire two 5770s and maybe upgrading to a Phenom II X4 or X6.

First of all, you will be very lucky if that power supply will pull even one of those video cards (I would not try it if it were mine), and you speak about two, no way do you want to try that. I would use a 650 Corsair or Seasonic as a bare minimum for one of those cards (I would use 750 if you plan on any overclocking) and if you want two, then think bigger like an 800 to 850 watt of the same brands.

Another nod for a Corsair / Seasonic PSU. Stick with 1 card, you'll get maybe 20% increase at best, at double the cost, with twice the power consumption and increased heat. 1 powerful card > 2 lesser cards.

Might as well get a Phenom II x4 now if you're planning on doing it, $50 difference now, $150 if you do it later. The 945 and 955 are both solid CPU's at a fair price (about $150).

Same advice as above. Use one 5770 and a minimum 650W Corsair or SeaSonic PSU.
