Hey all, i'm trying to build a gaming pc on a budget. wanted to get some input!

$190 I definitely want an i5-2500 3.3. don't really care about OCing it and i found it for 190 w/rebate

$100 GIGABYTE GA-Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68 Motherboard. Want to be able to crossfirex at some point in the future

$109 Patriot PP120GS25SSDR Pyro 2.5" Solid State Drive 120GB. I've consistently heard that swtor runs better on an ssd. I'll transfer my current HDD also for extra space. SWTOR and Windows on the SSD.

$40 Coolmax ZX-600 600W PS

$40 Cooler Master RC-430-KWN1 Elite 430 Mid Tower ATX Case

$40 8gb Crucial Ballistix BLS2KIT4G3D1609DS1S0 DDR3 RAM

$520 total: $665 in you include the XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB DDR5 for that i already have

I'm really happy with the cost, I was aiming for <600 and ended up at 520. Makes me think I have to be missing something
