This gigabyte Mobo is just a good with same specs for $100 less.
I'd also recommend getting a new Monitor that's 1080p.
This $189 Asus is a good choice

Oh for gaming, wireless is a bad idea. If you want a gaming keyboard and mouse look into saitek eclipse and mx518.

Seems the 5870 is out of stock at newegg, if by chance its not back in by the time i do this, is there a back up card you guys would recommend?
Apr 22, 2010, 2:05 PM
scratch that, The HIS model is out of stock. Would you guys recommend ASUS or XFX of the same card?

The XFXs are known for their reliability and great warranties. I would go for that one.
