For gaming I would swap out the 2500k for the 2400 and use the money saved to get a hd 6870. 1600mhz RAM ruins your CPU warranty. Other than that, it seems compatible. I also think for a 6870 you need to pcie connectors but I am not sure.

Its also low profile to help with fitting around large heat sinks.

Its a great build you have listed. Just a few small opinions of mine. If prices and rating is the same then why Not buy matching parts.. XD Have fun building

Dude stop it I'm already drooling... XD

Haha

Good build, you can always add a second 6850 and a after market cooler down the road. But for under 1000 with a OS thats SMOKING..

Also that's the EXACT ram i have. just looked into my case to confirm it. Good stuff

With MIR the 6870 is $5 cheaper than the 6850.
