Even though there is a SLI hack the performance is still lower than what it would be on Intel's x58 chipset. I say go with AMD if your just playing to use your system for gaming.
my screen resolution is 1920x1080 and i dont think ill ever use more than one monitor but yeah i am kind of leaning toward amd, thanks.

Here's a pretty nice build that's below your budget.
You could even add an SSD if you wanted.
Case is not included in the price.

why not spend the extra $10 and get the i7-960?

Wow, didn't see that. Good find!
Not much of a performance gain though... plus the combo deal with the motherboard make the 950 much cheaper.

Microcenter does have the 950 for $200.00 if you have one near you.

580 is great but xfire 6850's, 6870's, or sli 560ti's will out do it. Unless you like single card, I did until the 6800 series launched/ the crossfire setups I said will save you $$$ as well.

Just clock speed. you can always overclock the 950 to 960 speed.
