Hi all, thanks for your time. I'm building a gaming PC and looking to spend $1100-1250 (without monitor or peripherals considered). I'm going to be running a single graphics card on a single monitor. Hopefully I'll be able to max out most games with some AA with the system below.

Mobo:($200) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU:($160) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
GPU:($390) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
PSU:($130) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM:($73) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HDD:($90) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Optical Drive:($22) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=27-106-...
Case:($90) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total (Without shipping):$1155

Your thoughts/suggestions? Thanks again. :D

Could I just go with my build + the 5970. Also, how much more performance will I get over the 5870 with it? Sorry for the questioning, I appreciate your help!

Thanks for your reply. A little out of my price range though (after factoring in my case + optical drive). The 2GB 5870 is a little excessive price-wise for what I'll get out of it.
