The 470 cost more then the 5850, and unless you can show me some benchmarks that prove other wise, while it may be a very slightly better card unless you find one on sale for around the same price range its not really worth going for ( in my mind) if he was going to spend that much money he could spend a little more and pick up a 5870, which we should both be able to agree would be a lot bigger upgrade then the 470.

But definitly agree on the powersupply go with the one me and the other guy pointed out.

As far as i7 vs the 1090T I was just playing devils advicate, pointing out the other way you could go. I went the i7 route on my build but the 1090T would more then run FF14 which is what your trying to acomplish here.
GTX 470 cost 314.99 with rebate its 295.99.....ATI 5850 cost 349.99 how you figure its cheaper lmao go do your research newbii 470 killers 5850 and its almost 60 dollars cheaper lmao

350? I linked the the xfx 5850 for 294.99 right now, before you start talking about doing research actually read all the posts in the therad? and again from what I have read in the past the difference is hardly anything if I am wrong please feel free to drop a few links to some benchmarks that show other wise , and the lowest price I found on a 470 was 325 after rebates ( not to say that there is not one for 295 just had not seen ityet)

oh and +1 an aftermarket cpu cooler

^You can get both the same price give or take 5 bucks. Go do some checking on newegg. Theyre both upwards of 360 and as low as $270 after mir.

Also, most tests i've seen, the 5850 is abit above the 470.

One more question, and once again, thanks for being so helpful guys. But is there anything else I will need other than what I posted? Like a specific screwedriver, or static free gloves? Screws maybe? I just wanna make sure that when I get the parts, I won't have to be ordering something else because I forgot something. Thanks again!


*EDIT*
I was also just wondering if there is anything else you guys think I will need? When I say that I mean like a specific screwdriver, or static free gloves? Or does everything just come with the parts I ordered?

No, it is not. GTX 470 wins in most cases specially with the newer drivers

However, the bad thing about nvidia GF100 is power consumption. GTX 470 consume a lot more power than HD5850


*EDIT*
As for CPU and Motherboard, I recommend this combo deal
Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

I more or less agree. The i7 870 should really be called a i5 870. I would stick with the 1090 over the 870.
