it sucks that if i were to keep the price down i would have to remove the Geforce 670....i guess i problably will have to then. at least with the Intel HD 2500 ill have like 80fps in left 4 dead 2 and battle field 3 and stuff.

again, keep in mind that im not going to purchase this until i receive the stock money that will be coming in the mail (should be around 3-4 weeks)

You won't be able to play BF3 on HD2500, maybe L4D.

Instead of getting the gtx670 get an HD7870, gtx570 or HD7950 and save a few bucks. The 7870's are great cards (practically on par with the gtx580) and will play anything out there with very good frame rates.

HARDWARE REVIEW TIME.

EDIT: ok i found that if i wanted to get performances that suffices for battlefield 3 i would need the Intel HD graphics 4000 which is availible on the core i7. bah.

i will make the choice to stick with the 670 instead.
