I'm pretty certain this will all work together. but i need a good GPU that will work for around $150 or so. also if anyone has any other suggestions for this it would be greatly appreciated! trying to keep it below $900 and this is $700 without the GPU.

I like my build and i think it's a really good computer for awhile. I just want a $100-$200 graphics card. This is still a solid system from what i know.

just go with mine. it has more performance and is completely upgradeable. for the graphics card, either get a 6870, 6950 which is around the 200 dollar mark or a 7850 like azeem40 mentioned

Caviar blue 500gb 75$
G.skill 2x4gb 1600 45$
win7home premium 64bit 100$
the blue ray drive you have cant remember what $
Challenger + 550w hive 100$
i5-2500+asrock pro3gen3 z68 296$
Asus gtx 560ti dcii 230$

I have this sitting in my cart for 906.91 before rebate and before the special 10$ off hdd if your buying it anytime soon special. I would attempt to fit in a 7850, but that requires

A) decrease i5-2500 to a i5-2400 or i5-2300
B) me to change mobos if possible
C) change the blue ray drive if theres something cheaper
D) buy win7 from another site that has legit copies for less
