That price is only if you have a microcenter near you the closest one would cost me almost 40 bucks in gas :[ But other then that that still works perfectly for me!

And is that a quality mobo?

One of the best Price/performance builds I have ever seen (Especially that 7870!). I give this my full support and would only upgrade to a 7950 if anything (Though at that price get the 7870!)!
