That build is wrong. You have a $30 cpu h/s, a $110 P67 board, and a $90 Corsair psu to push a 570 yet you don't plan on running SLI nor do you plan on over clocking.

well I'm unsure what you mean by all wrong.
Im not running SLI as i need a rig that costs less than $1000,
and i didn't plan on OC as the i5-2500 says it auto adjusts as you need - and OC is new to me a lil bit of noob.

what would you suggest?

Two ways I would do this. First drop the after market cpu h/s, get a H61 board, and a 550w XFX psu.

or option #2...

I can post a build on here in that price that would leave open the option for over clocking and SLI later on down the road.

Anyone think the hardware is best for the money?
Or would you do something different

I honestly don't know if any of those games other than COD and bio shock would take advantage of dual vid cards. Maybe just change that psu to the XFX to save some money or look at the Antec 650's.

If you do change your mind here's a build I posted not to long ago that leaves that option open for SLI. The case in that build is the one the OP chose...otherwise I would have put a Cooler Master in that build.
