It may be a little over your budget before rebates. If so, then I would recommend dropping the HDD down to a 1tb drive. You're going to get most of your gaming performance from your GPU. You don't want to weaken it more than it already is. The HD 7870 should be able to handle most games on Ultra at over 30 fps with ease.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
