Looks like a great system I have a similar system just a intel version I am planning on buying that graphics card and that is a great choice. Have you bought it yet if not I would go intel and nvidia if you can afford it what is your budget and are you loyal to any companiies??

Hey man, that is a very similar build to what i'm running now - http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/349316-13-tomshardw... I've run battlefield 3 on it, on high graphics it runs at around 50fps as standard, as you will have a 6870 over my 6850 i'd expect maybe a 10% performance increase perhaps. For games like Cod it will run fine, COD4 expect 250fps constant @ 1080p.

Not true - you can get a quad core Intel with a decent GPU for a little over $800. And it's far better than any AMD rig right now.

Try this:

Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $59.99
PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600 V2 - $69.99 ($20.00 MIR)
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-H77-DS3H - $119.99
CPU: 3.1GHz Intel Core i5-3450 - $199.99
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 - $46.99
HD: Seagate SV35 Series ST3500411SV 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s - $89.99
Optical: Lite on DVD Burner - $17.99
Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 7850 - $249.99

Total: $834.89 - $20.00 MIR = $814.89
