I can get 5 with my current chip, but temps get out of control.

Also, I'd look into a 6870 or a 6950 instead of the 5870. Better cards. And the PSU, go for the Antec Neo ECO 520, or the Neo ECO 400 even. You really have no reason to buy such an expensive PSU for such a low power build, and the OCZ units are mediocre anyway.
this build is not going to do much overclocking so i think my low end mobo is fine. As for the psu, i am just buying it off my friend who were going to build a comp then stopped half way. For 50 bucks for that "medicore" psu, i believe it isnt a bad deal

Can't squeeze an SSD into your budget? That's the one thing about the build I just did that I would never change. Money extremely well spent, IMO.

If your not Video editing or photoshopping, or CAD alot then dump the extra 4 gb of ram and just get a 4gb kit, anything over 4 is next to useless for gaming.
You also might want to change the PSU to a more "reliable" brand, and the heatsink to a 212+ its cheaper and seems to overclock better, and that board isn't that great for OCing, maybe take the heatsink money (from the one you have to 212+) and put it into a different board, like a P8P67 Pro or something.

i might go to micro center first to see what board they have then i will see, without much overclocking, this low end board might serve me just fine
