    You can shave off another $20 by going with a 512MB GPU, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150466&cm_re=5670-_-14-150-466-_-Product
  2. $378AR
  3. A +1 to the general components selected.. except the cpu and graphics..
    I'd go for batuchka's path on the cpu

    250 is more powerful, but 5670 is more futureproof with dx11 etc

    seagate 7200.12 and samsung f3 are both great hd's, f3 is marginally better.
    not too sure about the case choice in batuchka's build
  4. Well with DX11 the HD 5670 comes to a crawl and that HEC Blitz is a slightly cut down version of Rosewill Destroyer but still has great cooling options for the $$ especially since price cuts hehe
