This is a new build I am looking at possibly building in the next coming weeks, was thinking to purchase all parts on black friday/ cyber monday. Or should I start ordering them now?

I am trying to build a fairly future proof gaming rig, and was wondering if I need a bigger PSU if I might crossfire in the future, and whether or not I should go with a 7950 over the 7870. I would like to stay below $900 on the budget but could go over maybe by about $20.

That link goes to an "unusual" $2000 upgrade.

Sweet 2008 build. Probably could do a bit better at that price point. Ha

Yeah you most likely won't be able to find any of those components anywhere, and even if you did they wouldn't work well together.

Ah that's more like it. Everything on that build looks good but switch out the power supply - I don't trust that one. Get a Corsair TX 650 instead.

What about the 7950 vs 7870? do you think it would be worth it in the long run so I wouldnt have to upgrade as soon?

Always get the single strongest card you can afford. The 7950 is better than the 7870, so for your budget get that.
