Is there any card that is pretty close to the 5870, but a little cheaper?

Also as for the GPU, i'm not really a hard hard core gamer, so a lower card will do!

Here guys, this is my final build! Tell what me what you think, I've been building through a retailer called Memory Express up in Canada and I've been checking prices with Newegg.ca since they do a 7 days price match guarantee. Yes, I'm letting them build the machine and installing the OS. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed before I go ahead with this.

Why do you recommend the 920 rather than the 930?

many people have experienced better overclocking with the 920.

Ok, that sounds good to me then. I don't really overclock a whole lot and i could save more money this way by getting the 920. As the CPU cooler, which one is the best and is there one that contains a blue LED fan with it (main reason i wanted the Zalman) lol.
