Ugh, single channel 4GB memory. Get a dual channel 8GB kit. Performs much better, difference in price is less than half a tank of gas.

Also, I really wouldn't do a pair of 6870s. They don't leave you an upgrade path in the future. The GTX 670 offers similar or better performance at a small increase in price, lower power use and allows you a GPU upgrade in the future without having to scrap your previous cards.

I agree with the video cards. You should get one card for about the price of those 2 because if you need more juice in the future then you can just add another. If you get those 2 then you would have to buy 2 whole new cards instead of just one.

450-600 build....will get that dual channel though good catch. Im not really into the whole buy 400 dollar parts just so two years later i can see it on the market for 200. Dont think i would have the self control to save 400 dollars to buy that card when a 6870 is staring me in the face. did i mention that i put the gfx card price seperate because i dont have the money to even buy 1 of them yet =)
