Then other than that you can get 110 fps on that system on 1920x1200 resolution.

The case is one of the best reviewed cases ever; the PSU is perfectly suited of it.

For the RAM, I can't tell whether its low profile

Why are you using a Micro-ATX MoBo in a mid tower computer ? I'd suggest a full size board like the Asus P8Z77-V

The Seagate Momentus is a hybrid SSD / HD and is only $80 ..... boot to Windows in just 17 seconds, 1 second slower than a full blown SSD. $99.99 ..... $20 off w/ promo code EMCNDNB37, ends 6/14

As for the GFX.....last gen cards under $250 ... pick one that suits ya needs.

Guru3D uses the following games in their test suite, COD-MW, Bad Company 2, Dirt 2, Far Cry 2, Metro 2033, Dawn of Discovery, Crysis Warhead. Total fps (summing fps in each game @ 1920 x 1200) for the various options in parenthesis (single card / SL or CF) are tabulated below along with their cost in dollars per frame single card - CF or SLI:

$ 150.00 6870 (434/701) $ 0.35 - $ 0.43
$ 200.00 6950 (479/751) $ 0.42 - $ 0.53
$ 240.00 6950 Frozr OC (484/759) $ 0.50 - $ 0.63
$ 200.00 560 Ti (455/792) $ 0.44 - $ 0.51
$ 210.00 560 Ti - 900 Mhz (495/862) $ 0.42 - $ 0.49

These have the best bang for the buck

$150 6870
$210 560 Ti (900Mhz)

here is a link to the memory it is a Norwegian store bout there is pic
I do not think it is low profile

the reason for Micro-ATX is that it was cheaper and i got all that i need on it "is there any problems using that in stead of ATX

for the case i kinda like it is there a problem with it

for the HDD i like the Seagate Momentus and will get that in stead

and I do not really understand what you mean about the GPU do you mean that i is a good choices with the XFX HD6870 or not
