Hey Guys!
My new graduation present is ready. Here's what i've come up with after a week or two of research.

I pretty much play BF3 and a few choice games. I am not a graphics snob but I do need a solid rig.
Already own: Radeon HD 6950, 24' monitor, and the case/keyboard/mouse/speakers.
Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Newegg seems to have the best prices for this stuff...
Overclocking: yes
SLI or Crossfire: Yes
Monitor Resolution: 1920x1200 and possibly 3D resolutions

Here's the linx
Total Cost on Newegg- $783

Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz

So lemme know what you think! Aso, is there a way to get win7 cheap? Are legal copies more secure?

Thanks for the call on that board. I looked at the prices and took your suggestion!
I think i found a cpu fan that I like, which appears to be right between the two you sent me.
