^ If gaming is the main priority, then get the Intel i3 2100, it performs better in gaming even when compared with the X4 955/965,...
What PSU have you chosen ??

Where exactly do you plan on getting a HD6970 for $250, or am I missing something?

In any case, your CPU will barely keep up with your GPU, and you haven't mentioned the $80+ PSU you need to keep that running.

Much more realistic build

It costs $800, but you can shed the price by dropping the stuff you already have.

Or you can start here.

That's around $400 without the parts you have. You can upgrade the GPU to a HD6870 for +$75 or HD6950 for +$125.

Thank you. Here another build I made:
---------------
Motherboard - Asus M5A87 $99.99

Processor/GFX Card Combo
(6-core AMD and 2GB GFX Card) $450 (with $15 discount)

8GB GS Value Series Memory $75

Optical Drive- Salvaged $0

OS- Ubuntu (Buy Windows later?) $0

Power Supply- Raidmax Hybrid RX-730SS $59.99

Case- NZXT M59 $49.99

Hard Drive- Seagate 1.5 TB 64MB Cache! $~50

Total Price $775
--------------------
Is this better? Are there any incompatibilities/something wrong/cheaper or better? Also, is there a way to fit all this in a Micro ATX case if I use a Micro ATX AM3+ Mobo? I saw some on Newegg, and although they were rated 4 stars, they had horrible cons (Case bulges, horrible ventilation, etc.).
