$719 + $60 MIR for a total of $659 (I get free shipping due to my shoprunner account, but I think its like $4 without one)

SO $9 more and you get a i5 3570K ulocked quad core ivybridge + a 7870 (overclocked is faster than a 660 TI) + 8 gig 1600 mhz g.skill (my favorite ram)

+ 3 FREE games

For $690 you can get a 7950 if you remove the 7870 and the psu and get these:

I would DEFINATELY spend $40 to get a 7950 which when overclocked will beat a gtx 670[/quote]
