that cpu and motherboard come in a combo that save you $12

the PSU may be a little over what you need a CX500 will do, but with the rebate on the 600 it comes out the the same price, so I would stick with the CX 600.

the HD 6870 may not quite get you ultra on everything, but it will come close at 1440x900.

if you had more $ in you budget I would get a HD 7850.

good build
