So far I've put together this build. It fits the bill pretty well, and I've been working on it for a while so I'm having trouble finding a better deal. I just wanted someone else to look over it for me, maybe I'm missing something.

The only things I'm unsure about is the graphics card and the memory. Is the 7870 really worth the extra $50-$60 (on newegg) over the 7850? And I'm not too up-to-date on memory, so if there is better memory, for similar prices, then lead me there. Nothing here is too set in stone, so if something is just not right, or if something is just a bad choice, let me know. One other thing, I know the GTX 660 Ti just came out, and I know it performs on par, with the 7870, but I'm kinda bias toward the AMD cards. But if there is some awesome deal on the 660 Ti, or something then I'd consider switching.
