Thanks unfortunatly I don't have any benchmarks or anything due to its lack of graphics cardness. Does anybody know when the 5870s will be back, I read 2 weeks.

yes, where did you buy your parts from? for that much you could have gotten a i7 920, which smokes the PII 965. might want to consider sending the stuff back.
