Here is my build. This is going to be used for gaming and I would like the option to add another hd4870 in the future. Plan to play games at high res 1600 or greater.

Any suggestions on how to reduce the price or make components better for same price?

Here is my list.

Total with shipping and tax is $1,122.57

Thanks for looking.

Get a SATA burner, not the IDE one.
usually a wired mouse for gaming to eliminate lag.

build looks good.

^^ agreed
Get Sata drive

Also switch 500AAKS w/ 640 AAKS, much faster

Only other thought i have is get a 9800GX2. Some are cheap (evga) and are good for the $$$. but some will say go w/ 4870 cause its newer, less heat, and power etc. ur call
