My System Specs

Default

well the whole point is just for a great media build but the 6970 might be over kill but im getting a great price on one lol, but i cant justify spending a extra 80 bucks on the i5 jut bc ill be watching a lot of movies on it. but if i played more games like i did before i would go with the i5,

so everyone thinks the i3 and a 680 or a 6970 would be fine ?

Based on what you said you want to do with the system those parts would be fine.
