  1. MOBO : ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ 85$ ...10$ cheaper than Asus M5A97
    CASE : COOLER MASTER HAF 912 59$ and 49$ after rebates...40$ cheaper than HAF 922
    PSU : CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 V2 600W 70$ and 60$ after rebates....20$ cheaper than TX 650W
    You have 70$+ to invest in a better full hd monitor and a 560Ti :
    HANNspree By Hanns-G Black 21.5" 5ms Full HD
    ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti
  2. One thing for certain, no computer you build today is 5-year future proof. I'll give a maximum of 3 years before the HD6870 becomes inadequate, probably less.

    I'd suggest cutting a few more corners. Get a cheap $50 case. Get a Corsair CX500 PSU. That's a $100 saved. Use that money on getting a GTX560Ti and a full HD monitor.
  3. Another good PSU modular and enough for your build even with 560Ti.
