Been studying parts for a few weeks. I've come up with what I think is the best rig for my budget(about $600-800). I want to build a computer that can handle anything I throw at it for the next 2 years(at least), then I plan on overclocking to get the most I can out of my parts & finally upgrading the necessary parts from there. I have no intention(at all) to SLI/CFX. Without further ado, here's the setup I'm planning to build.

Pieces I've already bought:
Kingston HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3(1600mhz)($53 after tax & shipping+free game):

Pieces I've already decided on:
HIS Radeon 6870:
Antec 900 Case:

Pieces I haven't quite decided on yet:
Power Supply, Hard Drive(not buying a Solid til the price drops), Motherboard and Thermal Compound.

So that's what I've got and don't got so far. I'm recycling the DVD drive from my current computer & want to buy a mobo that comes with a sound card, if it doesn't I'll just recycle that from my current computer as well. I'd really appreciate your ratings on what I've already picked out and some suggestions on what I haven't. Quite stumped on picking out those few parts, especially the motherboard. Thanks in advance!
