what parts are best suited for the 6870? cpu, psu etc..
I built a setup from newegg with:
Phenom II x4 955 + Gigabyte 870 MB (combo) (you may prefer the asrock 870, but it has 6 channel audio) -$15
OCZ Fatal1ty 550w PSU + 4GB OCZ Reaper 1600 DDR3 (combo) -$13
HAF 912 + LG 24x dvd burner (combo) -$10
Gigabyte 6870 HD (kinda regret, people are saying the HIS ones are better, seems negligable)
2 x Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB (I got these for $37 each, I lucked out)
I also got 10% off my video card, and my hard drives. I also got 35 on the MIRs.
All for under $800 shipped to Hawaii. There are some crazy good deals going on, on newegg, right now.
I'm quite happy, I was going to wait til black friday/cyber monday, but this was already an extremely good deal.
People might give me some concern regarding my choice of PSU, but the specs were well within limits on this one, plus it has a bigger fan and crazy quiet ball bearings, I'll stand by my choice, the ram and psu combo is a crazy good deal.
