Ya that looks a little messed up. I guess I was actually looking at this kit: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

The 6770 is two generations old - it would be better to get a Radeon 7750 or Radeon 7770 GHz edition for the same price, don't pay over $100 for a GPU and get last year's hardware, that doesn't make sense.
