I would buy some cheap Athlon with that rig, and then upgrade to Bulldozer. I find it useless to buy top of the line CPU when it's obvious you want BD

I would say ditch the two 6850's and buy a 570 for $20 more, look at the benches and you will see the $20 is well worth it...now how that will perform with an anthlon until bulldozer is questionable, but it will be well worth it when that time come around.

Won't be bottlenecked with an Athlon quad OCed At lest won't be noticeably bottlenecked.

That's awesome but can you sit on it a bit and wait for BD? Like ronnin said if you do get a CPU before BD, a cheap Athlon x4 will do. Have use for the Athlon once BD comes out though? Maybe you can sell it off but really I'd just wait.

I know I have a build already. But I am waiting to do my upgrade once bulldozer comes out. That goes mobo everything. I almost feel it is a waste having built this only 5 months ago. I wish I was paying attention to when bulldozer was releasing because I could have easily saved myself A LOT of money.

Better HDD for less, and not recertified :X . Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB $55 Shipped. You can get the 500gb model for just $40.
