Looking to build a computer based around my i7 2600 3.4 Ghz and my sapphire radeon hd 6850. I'm wondering if all these components will work with each other and if there are any improvements that I could make on this build.

Yes, those components will all work fine together. If you are a gamer, you may want to upgrade your graphics card to a bit faster one. Although, there's nothing wrong with the HD 6850. It will game at 1920x1080 with some reduced settings on modern games. Perhaps you would like to consider the HD 6870 or GTX 560 at slightly more cost. It mainly depends on the resolution of your monitor.

You seems to be missing a HDD and/or SSD.

Otherwise the build looks fine to me.

Everything you listed are good, but your missing a hard drive. I will recommend get a 128/256 GB SSD for your OS, games, and some programs. Then get a HDD for your storage. Also, you might want to consider get another HD 6850 and make them CrossfireX (they are around $150 on newegg), so you don't have to waste your current video card, and get better gaming performance.

I wouldn't recommend Xfiring 2 HD 6850s. I had 2 in a previous board. Not good. The micro stutter with mid-range cards like that is a problem in some games. And if he wants to go with a 3rd card to try and offset the MS, it will be crippled by the x2 or x4 bandwidth.

Your right, I forgot about that. But it will be kind of a waste by upgrading his HD 6850 to another card.
