DIY kits seem like a good deal, but in most cases, you can hand pick parts for cheaper

Dual 6850? A single 6950 should do you good at 1600*900 while having the option of CF later.

I'm a little confused as to why you need 2 6850's let alone a 2500K when you're not overclocking. And your resolution is so small (1600x900). A 5770 would max out on that resolution in most games @ high.

Well I'd suggest getting a single 560 Ti OC'd, then getting another one later. It'll give you way more perf, a single OC'd 560 Ti even from manufacturers stock OC is equivalent to a 570.

Looks good. Maybe save a bit more with the PSU and go with this one.

2x5850 would perform about the same as 2x6850. Just stick with 2x6850 for availability reasons.

Get this HDD instead

More reliable, cheaper on Amazon, Faster too.

I'd spend a little more on the 6850 and get this for cooling reasons
