Nice build, when you get it, OC CPU and Unlock your 6950 to be at the performance of a 6970...
BTW, where's your HDD or SSD? If you all about gaming, go with SSD at least 60GB or 120GB depend how much games you install...

dude an i5 2500k not even overclocked would destroy that in gaming to be honest over nice and make sure you have a corsair or CM power supply of 750w that GFX card will use alot

Most of the gaming performance im looking for is in the graphics this card is boss and my corsair 620w should do the deal right? its a over a $100 powersupply.

Your links no workie

Things you might wanna consider....

Case - 922 was a great case in it's day but the lack of a front USB 3 port makes it a non contender today in my book.

MoBo - It gets decent reviews but I just can't get behind any MoBo w/ only a 2 year warranty.

PSU - The Antec Neo series is an "economy" (read crappy) model, I would recommend against ...XFX Core Edition 650 gets a 9.5 from jonnyguru .... the Neo line gets a 6.5

GFX - The factory OC'd 560 is faster than the more expensive factory OC'd 6950 ..... but w/ the release of the hybrid 560/570 ....to be known as the 560-448, coming out on Tuesday for reportedly the same price, that's the card I'd be buying....at 1920 x 1200 or lower resolutions.

the psu is just sooo cheap tho u can beat that price....and the graphics card that is there has the easy switch forgot wat it was called and when on it gains 128 more shaders making a total of 1536 shaders. But is this setup overall compatible?

I'd go for that TX750.

You may want to fix your links on the first post.

I still say it's worth finding the cheapest case with front panel USB 3.0 that'll fit your cooler.

Jack_Naylor's a big GTX 560Ti fan...he may have a good point about waiting though. But go ahead and buy most of your parts right now while they're a good price.

You can save $10 over the 750w with the CMPSU-650TX

It (and the PhII 955!) should push a cranked and modded HD6950 just dandy ...

I'd expect dual modded OC'd 6950's to pull about 450W then under max load? If you add 200W for the OC'd CPU + mobo under load, then you're at 650W even. I mentioned on his previous thread that 650W could handle them but that it's cutting it close. If he ended up doing F@H, a 650W might end up loaded too high too often for longterm stability.
