ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Hello, I am trying to build a PC to be used for gaming and also for media. I also want plenty of room for upgrading as my last build I could not upgrade at all with the parts that I chose. When I chose my parts now though, I ended up at $1966 (tax inc) which is almost 500 dollars over what I would like to spend. I do not mind going a little over my budget though!
Total $1389 Before Shipping and Tax and $20 MIR ~$1617 with tax and shipping before $20 MIR
Ok so scratch the 5870 fitting.
You could fit the 5870 into there, but honestly that thing is 33% more expensive for a 10%-15% performance increase. There's no game out there that a 5870 can run smoothly that a 5850 can't also run smoothly.
Mobo has SATA 6.0/USB 3.0 and a second x8 slot for a future 5850.
PSU has the wiring and overhead for second 5850 and OC on both CPU and GPU"s.
