Just wait, Southern Island (HD 6000 series) is supposed to come out in Q4.
Also, checking a build this far until you're going to buy is just pointless. Prices will change so much.

to be honest, i was kicking the tire around you know.. seeing whats out there etc. would it be wise to wait for southern island... to come out then look for a 5890 as the price will drop?

Yes it would be.
The 6770 is supposedly as good as a 5870.

If you want my opinion for this build, though,
here it is.

That harddrive is meant as a storage drive, not a primary drive.
Get a different brand of ram, and 8GB is unneeded, unless you're editing HD videos.
Bad brand of PSU.
Why not save some money and get a 1055T?
Kind of lame motherboard. Get a 890GX instead.
