final price is 1157.89$. also you have a few options. once it comes back in stock, you could get a 1 tb f3, you could crossfire the 5850 in the future, get 8 gigs of ram, or instead of getting the 860, get the 750, so you could get one of those upgrades. also, the mobo has sata 6, and usb 3, which will be a little useful in the future. * i believe that crossfire disables that, but the 5850 is very powerful, so it doesnt really matter* you could also get the haf 922 instead, but i went with the 932.
