Yes, but if it goes over price range we'll just have to leave that :/

If you can find a bit more in the budget, this would be a nice sweet spot in terms of value.

Intel Core i5-2400
4GB Kingston HyperX 1333Mhz
ASRock H61M/U3S3
HIS HD 6870 1GB
Seagate Barracuda 500GB
Corsair CX-500
Fractal Design Core 1000
Samsung DVD Burner
Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Acer S211HLbd 21.5'' Monitor

Total - $870.90 before shipping and $20 rebates

Slightly over budget but very good value. If you need to bring it under $800 you could either:

- Use an old hard drive
- Drop the HD 6870 to an HD 6850 and PSU to CX-430
- Drop the i5 down to an i3
