I don't know much about Biostar mobos, but i think I would be rolling with a GB UD4. - Edit, seems to get a good write up.

And why the antec 1200? its a crap case. get a nice corsair or something like that.

for a little less money you can get a z68 board with the same options +1 sata II port, with the possability of upgrading to an IB later.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813157271

and if this is intended to be a gaming build(skyrim, BF3, Rage), you may want to consider pushing for a second 6870, or uping it to a 6970/570.

edit: im assuming this is somewhat of a budget build. if you go with the z68 board, you can get a cheap sata3 SSD a little while down the road to boost the overal speed at which everything loads/boots via smart response technology

Very weak power supply there
/*insertrollface

On the serious note, Antec Twelve Hundred is outdated even thought it looks great.
<EDIT> Take a look at the HAF 912-922-932 if you like the twelve hundred.
Much better cases, I've built many 912's rig and damn, those are spacious and easy to work with.</EDIT>
The motherboard you choosed isn't what I'd consider a safe choice but that's up to you.
Rest is perfectly fine, 6870's can max out most games out there, except a few with some lowered details.
And yeah, the first line basicly meant there is no psu

Just saying this is under AMD general. Anyway it looks like a good build I don't have that experience with Intel builds. You could get the 6830 instead and OC up to the clock of 6870 Since they are the same chip set, if you want to save a little. Though you should plan ahead what you want for graphics because you can only crossfire two of the same family GPUs i.e. 2x57xx or 2x69xx and I believe that the same goes for SLI as well. What do you plan to use for Cooler and PSU.

intel is a better option rite now for gaming. if you push for 6970/580s maybe even 6870/570s in sli theres a good possibility of the cards being bottlenecked by the cpu(amd)

im not sure what kind of games your intending to play, or if thats even the intent of the build.

but it would help to know what your budget is, and what you plan to mostly use your rig for.

also if you have loyalty(nvidia/ati evga/xfx)

i do recomend the z68 over the p67 for the simple added features(specially on a budget) and future resistance.

edit: it would also be beneficial to know what your PSU is pushing

Dont really understand what u mean 6870/570s and 6870/580s but its meant for BF3 and SWTOR.
Im hoping to keep it under 800 right now. and right now im looking at Z68 Mobo's i see what u mean by they are better and cheaper option
