Have you considered the i5 2500k?

No but seriously unless your heart is set on AMD for some reason you might want to look into the i3 2120. It's at the same price point, and you can easily swap in a similar Asrock 1155 mobo.

Also on that build there is absolutely no need for a 750watt power supply. You can get away with a 550w and save yourself some money that you can put somewhere else in the build.

One thing you could try and find cheaper would be the case, $50 is reasonable, but you probably could find cheaper :p

The 6950 makes a jump in wattage from the 6870. Is a 550w PSU still going to work with that?
