Agreed. Might as well jump up to the near top of the line for just $40 more. He is also right about the HDD. Spinpoint F3 is something like $54 for 1TB. He was right about you mislabeling the RAM...so that saves you $5...now you would only pay $35 more fore the 6970. and if your going to crossfire you will need a larger PSU IMO for that and OCing. Plus that PSU isnt even bronze, silver, or gold rated. I'd suggest around 850 and atleast bronze for safe side.
Good point about the video card and HDD. I was rounding up on the price of RAM and the DVD burner for simplicity. The PSU was one of my concerns. 750w seemed pushing it even for what I had. I'll be relisting w/ new parts later on when I get some more time.
The LEPA has multiple 12v rails, something I'd rather stay away from. I found another PSU that seems pretty good for the price: RAIDMAX RX-850AE 850W. Raidmax is not a name I've heard too much, but it has good reviews, a single rail, modular cables, and a 80 plus gold rating.
I'll probably be switching the RAM. The Mushkin is a strong option. And I've head that G.Skill has compatibility issues with the MSI p67A lineup. I'll also probably be switching the PSU, maybe to that Seasonic. Since finding the Raidmax one, I've read bad things about the brand.
The HD 6970 is still an option. But will 850W run two of those in Xfire?
Also since genghiskron suggested a Z68 mobo... What's the real difference between that and a p67? Other than SSD caching and Virtu.
theres no other difference, although the mobo i suggested doesnt have virtu, because it doesnt support onboard graphics. the biggest difference in this case is that the combo allows you to get 8gb of 1600mhz ram for just slightly more than the other mobo+ram. I also think its a better mobo in terms of layout and connectivity.
