and this mobo

sorry if this is a lot but ive been working on switching out parts/saving money for a while and i would love some advice!
I would definitely want to see a positive review of that hec power supply before buying it. With power supplies it is usually better to know that you are getting a good, high quality unit than potentially risking it with one from a brand who aren't known for selling high quality PSUs.

This is about the same price as the Antec Neo Eco, but comes with a 10% off promo code but is more efficient, is more closely related to the original S12II Bronze design and comes with a power cord:
Antec High Current Gamer HCG-520 80Plus Bronze $55 (10% off promo code available)

I would suggest sticking with the 6870, as you will probably appreciate the extra power at that kind of resolution. [...] 6827135204
asus dvd/cd combo [...] 6822152185
Samsung 1tb [...] mbo.683256
case/cpu combo i3-2100 and rosewill challenger [...] mbo.666641
mobo/gpu combo the asus h67 mobo and asus 6870 gpu [...] 6820231179
Based on what you have provided, I would probably go with the above just with the Antec PSU I suggested.

also will the videocard/gpu bottleneck???
No, don't think so.
