That build looks pretty good. If you have any money left, I'd look to upgrade your motherboard, ASRock has a kinda' bad reputation, but I've heard they're getting better.

I'd actually go with what imaurer (ASRock 870 Extreme3) has suggested rather than the ASUS M4A77TD. The ASUS only supports 1066 DDR3 without overclocking, which is pretty slow. The ASRock also has more expansion slots.

The board needs to be less than $75 so thats out of my budget :( 

Thanks for the thought though!

And I'm not a expert on high end GPU's but any reason why your going with the 5870 over the 6950 which I've seen a lot of people flashing up to a 6970.

Hawt!

But I bought the 5870 last week when it was $200

Here is my updated build



I am $15 over budget. Any ideas?

Yeah I had thought about that but the 2gb 5870 was on shell shocker for $200 w/ $20 MIR.

Cant beat a $180 2gb 5870 right?
