I would say go with the GTX 560 over the 6870. Generally better performance than the 6870, but it's a moot point.

If you can fit an SSD into your budget do so. The Spinpoint F3 is a solid choice for mechanical drives. Unless you're planning to do memory intensive tasks (video editing, etc.), get less RAM and save yourself the money. The NH-D14 is a fantastic cooler.

Drop that PSU for a better brand; Antec, Corsair, SeaSonic, all come to mind. Unless you plan to grab a second card down the road, you can definitely get a lower wattage PSU. a good 500-600W unit will be plenty for one card.

Corsair, antec, seasonic, and XFX(depending on which one you buy).

This is the only cheap fully modular PSU that i could find on newegg but it is not 600w-800w. If you want to look for a better psu that is fully modular, just type in "modular power supplies", and just remember fully modular psus arnt cheap if you still want quality

first of all personally i would be tempted to go for either a gtx 470 for about the same price as the 6870 and definatley dont start off your build with lesser cards in crossfire it just limits your potential later!

As for the F3 Spinpoint i currently have one partitioned to use as my system disk and would definatley recommend to other its cheap fast and stable, defiantly a good choice.

as for going for a modular power supply i would say that its worth while if you are using a small case but with practically any full tower case cable management is easy enough to not require one.

Other than that id say it looks like an awesome build im very happy with my 2500k, go for it!
