What the person posted above you from 88.09 39.96 46.56 39.00 119.62 92.26 13.18

Total 438.67

Also, it appears you get a free copy of Nexuiz with that 6870. I've tried the trial (on the Xbox 360) and thought it was pretty fun.

Just a note, from what I've heard, the FX series quad cores are really like Intel dual cores with hyperthreading enabled.

6870 and FX 4100 is pretty damn decent for a gaming PC in that budget I'd say.
