I plan on adding another card down the road and running SLI, so I am really wondering if I need to spend that much on a GPU.
I'm going to contradict one of the other members here.
Your graphics card. its getting a little obsolete. And I may draw fire for saying that. But its a mid end old version of a dx11 Card. If your monitor is 24", I am going to assume it is 1080p or better. And your graphics card will have issues with supporting full screen full dx11 games until you get into SLI with that card.

I know the 560s cost more, but they are better cards, and will be better to SLI in the future than a GTX 460..
but its your choice of course.

Check this thread for more information.
I like the look of that Prolimatech Megahalems. The CPU is one of the items I am picking up at Microcenter, so I will take your advice and at least look into it.

Thanks for the input. I changed the card to a 2GB 6950 that I just came across for $175. I wanted Nvidia, but how could I pass up that deal? BTW, my monitor is a 27" Samsung.

I posted about it in another thread tonight. I got talking to a buddy of mine about my build and he said he had the card for sale. Still in the box. Apparently, he bought it and can't use it for some reason. He paid $269 for it and has a $25 rebate coming too. So, he's out about $70 on the deal and he's fine with that. I am too I'm hoping its unlocked and I can OC it to a 6970, but I won't be very upset if its not.

not to derail your thread... but do you know what card you're getting?
