That has the PCIe x16 slot right? cause I can't find info saying that it does.
Also @rob,
I don't think I can afford the HD6950 even if I do save the$80. Also your right I decided not to get p67. I will post final parts for build in a little.

See that long blue horizontal slot with 3 white slots under it? That blue slot is PCIe x16, where you plug in your GPU. Click on the third pictures.

Cool, thanks for pointing that out. Here is what I will be building:

CPU:Intel i5 2500K

Case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119233

PSU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151094

MoBO:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157233

RAM:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820146748

HDD:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148836

Graphics card:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150540 Are there better in price range?

DVD drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204

Monitor:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009262

And I think that is everything. All I need is windows 7, keyboard/mouse.
I don't need a sound card right?

For a Final Total Cost of: $656.93

Also how can I upgrade this in the future: Can I push RAM up to 8GB?

Do i need extra cooling?

Considering the rebate, 6770 is fine for the price. Unless you have the time to hunt for a used GTX 460, 6770 will be fine for 1333x768 gaming.

Sound card is only needed to improve the quality of the sound, you don't need it. Motherboard already has a built-in sound card (and a pretty good one).

Your build is ready to go.

Missed these parts. You don't need extra cooling, since you are not doing OC.

In the future just grab that same RAM kit again if you want 8GB.
