So...I need it cheap! But not for the cost of quality. Specs:

DVD burner: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204
CASE: Cooler master HAF 912: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233
HDD: 500GB Seagate harddrive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148767
GPU: XFX 6850 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150618
PSU: Seasonic 620W Power Supply http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151095
RAM: G.Skill 4GB (2 x 2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277
MoBo: ASrock z75 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157304
CPU: i3-2120 Sandy Bridge http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077


Well, I think it all looks fine at $610.92 and $20.00 MIR
I think the PSU is a bit Over Kill.
Is that a good Motherboard?
Would a 380W PSU be enough? -- it seems very low though.

~~ On a unrelated note: Does anyone know if they still ship .edu windows 7 cd's free to students? I need the CD not the upgrade!

Thanks!

Most 7850 models are retailing for <$200 now so there's no point in purchasing a 6870. Get the 7850 for that difference.

I'm on a small $600 budget, including OS excluding Monitor. So I needed to make some cuts. I changed the MoBo to a H77 board, and got a ivy bridge, I kept the 6850 because I didn't think I'd ever need something like a 6870, Plus all together it'd be out of my price ranged.

That's excluding rebates? On Newegg it came out with shipping excluding rebates $669.25 with $30 in rebates.
Actually, I do like the build it's cheaper, but I don't think I'll need the 7850 at the moment. I only play games like LoL. I'll probably play more intensive games but nothing to big.
