    Do you plan on overclocking? The i5-2500k is unlocked for that, but you can save 10 dollars if you go with the regular i5-2500. Lol not that big of a deal I guess. I'm skeptical about the 6870, but overall looks pretty good.

    He plans on working with me on that.


    The card is good if I plan on doubling up in the future with a better PSU.

    correct and correct

    Your hard drive, is only SATA 3gb/s....but your mobo supports 6gb/s...get a different hard drive, might as well use the full potential of ur hard drive.

    And the gfx card is fine.

    Considering mine is a Gateway that maxes at 1280 x 1024 and is 17 inch, I do.

    That price for the new one is too good to pass up.

    6870 is a fantastic card, I've never had any issues with it and might eventually get a second one until the 7xxx series hits.

    Good! Because it is paid for!

    I'm only sad that I have no pink led lights.

    I know most might go against this, but if you are going to use that one card for a while it would be easier to just upgrade to a new card down the road, in 2-3 years. You can get a lot out of a card in time length if you don't have to have complete eye candy on games. It's just nice to have is all.
