First Build $800

Thanks to the loads of help from quite a few members here I managed to order what I think is going to be a beast for a computer!

Here's what I've got:
MOBO: MSI P67A-G45
CPU: Intel Sandy Bridge 2500K
CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212+
PSU: Antec BP550 Plus Continuous
GPU: XFX HD 6870 1GB
RAM: 2 sets G.SKILL RipJaws (2x2GBs)
HDD: 1TB Samsung* + 750GB Samsung* + 2TB Samsung + 500GB External
ODD: Asus 24x DVD Burner
Case: Rosewill Challenger
*already owned

Also ordered the magical $8 Liteon Keyboard.

Final cost: $814.88
After 2 MIR it'll be: $764.88
My inital budget was $400-500... :lol:

So what are everyone's thoughts?

    I would go with this video card over the xfx. Its the same exact specs and free dirt 3.

    Or if you really wanted to indulge yourself with a fine non-ref card that is well worth the money.

    both cards are non-ref nice designs.

    XFX is shabby


    I got that HD 6870 for $145 (also gets me dirt3 after registration).
    There really wasn't any saying no to that deal.
    And I long contemplated between that and the GTX 560ti.
    The price eventually won me over.
    I'll be doing a crossfire within the year to come.
