Finalizing $600 Gaming Build

Newegg is having its memorial day sale so... :bounce: I'll be purchasing my parts this week. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!! I'll be spending around $800 most likely (I have to buy monitor, keyboard/mouse, speakers, and Windows 7....)

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/8jd7 I was originally going to purchase these parts, but a friend's friend took my list and changed it. I was wondering which build was better...

    If you can make it fit in you budget, go for the 6870. I saw one on newegg for $160 i think after rebate.
