Well, what is your budget? And what are your intentions with the PC?

Without knowing your reasoning for your selections, I would say drop the Win7 Ultimate and go with home premium. Use the money to upgrade to a 7850 GPU. I am assuming you are building a gaming rig based on your build?

I dissagree stick with the 6870 but do drop the win 7 ultimate but upgrade to a i5 2500k or i5 3750k @ 3.4 ghz

Everything looks fine, but if you don't need Windows Ultimate then drop down to Windows Home Premium 64 bit OEM for $100 and upgrade your card to a gtx 560 ti which can be had now for $215 on amazon.

That Seasonic 520w is a little beast. It can easily push a gtx 560 ti and have juice left over. No need to upgrade that psu seeing how these new generation cards require less power than the older GTX cards of last year.

A gtx 560 ti uses a heck of a lot more juice than a 6870 and that 520w will push a 560 ti with ease.
