down grade your psu to a cheaper 500w.
You can get a 965 for $5 more.
Get this hard drive from WD instead

It's cheaper.
Get the msi 970A

You also might just want to wait a little, there are currently 660's for the same price as that 6870, but they are sold out.
I'm pretty sure that I saved you enough money to be able to include this in your pc as well

an his 7870 for $210. Comes with free games as well. Why would you get windows 7 pro? Just get home premium.

i'd suggest swapping out the 6870 with a 7850 or better but what you have is ok . .

I would look at getting a 660. they are currently a good value if you can find them around the $200 night, or a 7850 of course.
