This build I have already ordered from, and I just want to hear opinions and if people have any thought on the build. The order can still be modified, so good ideas for the build are welcome. My older build is like over 5 years old with the only upgrade being radeon HD5450 from radeon X1950.

The build is for semi-gaming; I play games but lower graphics are fine for me if I play some new game.

A new HD: Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB SATA3 7200RPM 16 - 88,90 €
GPU: Asus EAH6870 DC/2DI2S/1GD5 Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR - 185,90 €
Motherboard: Asus Sabertooth 990FX AM3+ ATX - 159,90 €
CPU: AMD FX-4100 3.6 Ghz 4-core Black Editon AM3+ - 120,90 €
Power: Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W ATX-virtalähde.80P - 132,90 €
Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8 GB Kit PC3-15000, 1866 MHz, 2x - 70,90 €

Sum: 759,40 €

Any ideas for this system?

Thanks in advance.

What do you think if I go with

Asus M5A99X EVO 990X AM3+ ATX (This has dual x8, sabertooth would have dual x16, what do you think?)
Asus EAH6950 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5 Radeon HD6950 2 GB GDDR5
Corsair TX750W V2 Enthusiast Series for 113,90 € or Antec TruePower New TP-750 750W ATX-virtalähde.80P - 132,90 €

So I can later on buy a 6950 to crossfire with.

What do you think?
