Now I know that most of these parts are pretty crappy but thats the best I could do right now and I do plan on upgrading my MOBO when I get the cash. So will they be good for now? Thanks in advance.

Ok..ill look into that mobo..about the 6870, i heard it requires two 6pin pci-e connectors and my GX series 450w only has one so im not sure if that would work. also is it okay to fit a PCI express 2.1 X 16 Graphics card on a MOBO that says 2.0x 16? just wondering and thanks for your advice.

you should have bought a bigger power supply or a better 450w unit like the one from xfx.

you limited yourself (even though you could have avoided it for like 10 bucks more) so yeah, get the 6850

2.1 and 2.0 are intercompatable. so is 3.0 and 2.0
