    Shoulda gone for the 6850 or 6950, the increased price of the 6870 / 6970 isn't worth it if you unlock the 6850 / 6950.

    You should've Take out the SSD, and used a 6gb hdd. SSD's are nice, but goddam are they expensive, and small. You could've use the money you saved to buy a nicer video card

    I have an external 2TB Hard drive, and the SSD will store my games / OS. Total was 994.54$ After 3 day shipping, with 90$ Mail in rebate cards. And meh, the 6870 is gonna be great. Don't really feel like unlocking the GPU either, I won't be doing anything too intense, mostly playing Skyrim & Bf3, and recording Minecraft. And @Alen thanks a bunch for the help with my computer, I took alot away from what you showed me.

    With all that money you spent I could of gotten a better computer.
    I'd reduce the size of the SSD and buy a standard HDD and used it as RAID 0.
    Shoulda got 6950.

    Wanted the SSD for faster boot times. As I may have already said I have 2GB of storage externally, I'm going to have it all nicely set up. This is my first build so I'll let you guys know the results!

    Not everyone needs a tidy case, especially if it comes at an increased price

    Not on high either, at least if your screen ain't hella small and your fps expectations hella low.
