Eh, I'll just stick with the 6870 for that price. So I'll edit my first post on what I'm going to build.

Also I switched to the i5-2500k and the motherboard you listed. (also this price includes the xfx 650w power source I mentioned) and the price comes to.

$751 before shipping.

This also includes the xfx card I was planning on getting because I cannot find a 6950 reference model.
Well, I have really no idea where you can buy your stuff since I come from Denmark That's why I don't list prices, but only parts

I do have both the i5-2500K and the ASRock P67 Extreme4 motherboard, and I can get my CPU up (with the auto Turbo feature) to 4,8 Ghz. with my H50, so if you choose an Antec Kühler 620, you should be able to hit 5 Ghz. with ease

Now for the case, I'd recommend (if budget) a Cooler Master HAF 912+ or the CM Storm Enforcer. Both can remove some of the HDD cases, and thereby provide extra smooth airflow from the front 200mm fan. You can and a 120mm side intake fan on the HAF, but not on the Enforcer. Both of the cases have the possibility of adding another 200mm fan in the top. Both really good cases. If you have more money though, I'd gone for the Silverstone Raven RV03, because if the really nifty features, and the "bottom-to-top" ventilation. You should really check up on that case. I'm getting it myself, and for an Antec Kühler 620 or any tower cooler (not top-down), the Raven RV03 case is extremely effective

It's very important that you make sure that the HD6950 is a 2Gb., and has a BIOS switch. If it doesn't, it will require a little more effort to unlock it. Also, the first revisions of the cards have better ability to unlock. But don't worry. TechPowerUp has the guides, and all that you would require to unlock the card Also, their forum is quite helpful

Sorry, for double posting, but I strongly recommend you to bite the bullet on the HD6950. I mean, you get so much better performance from it over a 6870. Think about it, you'd actually be getting a 6970! Price/performance wise nothing beats the 6950

You don't really have to unlock the 6950 at all if you don't want to. Its plenty powerful enough at stock...

Yeah, but you have the ability to make it a 6970! That's alone enough to buy it instead of the 6870

Also, adding another 6950/6970 further down the road will also bring you superb performance.

With the Storm Enforcer do you think I would need any extra fans? I mean the thing has 3 fans already built in, I would think that would be plenty, but then again I don't know much

No, you wouldn't I mean, I installed a system in a HAF 912+, and there was so much cool air inside the case - especially when removing the HDD-case

The CPU was between 22 and 25 degrees C on stock with a CoolIT ECO A.L.C.

I'm building a PC for a friend of mine with the Enforcer, and I look very much forward to it

Alright thanks for the help! I'll look around the internet for deals on the 6950 and the other parts that I have.

That would be a good idea

But the deal with the i5-2500k, mobo and PSU is great

If you don't need to OC like crazy, then get the Antec Kühler 620, and you'd have a very efficient yet very strong cooler, and the ability to add two fans down the road. The 620 would be perfect for the Enforcer case, if you draw the air from outside the case and in, and fit it in the back of course

To be sure, just get 8Gb. RAM. Even though 4Gb. is enough (I played through Crysis 2, and other newer games, and playing Hunted The Demon's Forge atm., and have no problems running apps in the background while playing) it's just good to be on the safe side. Buying 8Gb. G.Skill RipJawsX 1600Mhz. CL9 RAM soon

I'm just going to be starting of with this and run the processor at stock. It will run my needs just fine and then I'll go and buy the extras. Just found an i5 2500k for $50 less at a local store than buying it on New Egg...

Edit: But I will overclock in the future. Just don't have the cash to be buying it all at one time.
