  1. 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 . .

    How Will This do in bf3, I need A card around this budget:

    GIGABYTE GV-N65TOC-2GI GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125446&Tpk=GIGABYTE%20NVIDIA%20GeForce%20GTX%20650%20Ti%202GB%20GDDR5

    that would be ok but this, if the rebate can work, would be much better:
    PowerColor AX7850 2GB $184.99
    $174.99 after $10.00 rebate
  5. 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.
