i meant 2500k haha. Subconsciously I must want a 2600k

the one thing I can think to change would be to go with a 5870 over the 6870. the 6870 comes out to 205 with the combo price and a $30 MIR so $175 which is about the price of one of the xfx 5870's (same price after MIR) and I'd get a couple more fps in most scenarios, but I lose the frozr cooler which looks like it's pretty good (reports say 19C and 12db difference over reference cooler which is pretty good).

I also need a HSF. I'm not up to date what so ever on what's good in that department, and I really don't wanna go with stock cooling haha.

A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.

Also please use the search button. You've got a 50/50 chance that someone's asked your question and we've answered it.

You can always get a better heatsink later, I might be able to find you a good used heatsink in the next few weeks.
