I may have another HDD laying around.

This was the original version with the i5.

Thats not a bad build at all, I would just tweak it a little bit.
GPU, 560ti is a GREAT card, and the cooling on this card is exceptional.
Corsair PSU Personally I think Corsair is one of the best companies regarding their warranties.
P67 Extreme4 Gen3, a lightly upgraded version of the mobo you picked.
Low voltage ram, only a little more expensive and should help with overclocking.
Decent CPU cooler(212+) good cooler for the price.

If you are near a microcenter, you should get the 2500K and Z68 Extreeme4 Gen3 mobo, because they have a combo thing going on right now.

No Micro Centers near me. I don't plan to OC right now, just looking to get SWTOR up and running, which is why I left off a cooler. If I don't overclock do you think I'll need a cooler? You posted the cooler twice instead of the ram btw. YOu mentioned I might look at a better case, any suggestions?

For $20 you can get the MSI Twin Frozr III 6950 2GB and it has a 99% chance to unlock to a 6970 which is well worth $20 more.

Which also shows that I suck at browsing Newegg. smile.gif Still below budget, though.

Right now I would like to keep prices low with the option to upgrade later. The AMD build is just trying to keep costs down while still able to do high res 1080p SWTOR. From what I've seen unless I try to turn on AA (I'm originally a console gamer so I think my brain automatically filters out the jaggies, lol) the AMD build will do it fine.

Now the i5 build is 100$ more but it would give me the option to OC if I should ever choose to, as long as I get a cooler, and future proof me for my moderate needs. I chose the 6850 because I read online that two GPU's in conjunction can work well, meaning if at a later time I find I need more power I could always do the crossfire I believe they call it.

This is just an explanation of my builds based on my limited experience. I am here looking for advice so please feel free to tell me exactly where I messed up, that's how I learn.

If you get an AMD build then you'll have to get a new MOBO and CPU if you want to go Intel later. It just makes more sense to spend $100 more instead of $300 later.

Don't get the 6850.

Getting a 6870 like this will benefit you indefinitely more. Due to the lowering price of the market for the new 7000 series gpu's, AMD's prices have gone so low to a point where it is overall better for the money than Nvidia. That Sapphire card is only 5 dollars more, and smashes 460's (which that 6850 can only match)
