MOBO: ASRock Z68 Extreme3 - $120

PSU: XFX 550W 80+ bronze - $48 after MIR

Total: $580
If you need these:
DVD Drive: LITE-ON DVD Drive - $19
Mouse: Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical - $17
Keyboard: Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - $47

Hmm, the problem is, using the prices of my local store (not in the US), then converting back into USD, it would be over the 650 mark, although if I swapped the 6870 out for a 6850, do you think it would still run those games ok?

The graphics card is the last thing you should cheap out on for gaming but the 6850 is fine too.

But for stuff like Shogun 2 and Rome Total War 2, it should be adequate right?

Adequate but I wouldn't recommend it. I would just spend the extra money it's well worth it price performance wise.

Ok, I'll try to convince my friend to pay the bit extra for a 6870. If he can go a tad higher still, would something like the EVGA 560 ti be worth it?

EDIT: My bad, EVGA 560 FTW
