Skip the GTX260 and look into an ATI 4870 perhaps? Other than that everything looks pretty solid.

I heard the 4870 has a lot of driver and heat issues and I did not hear about any issues with the 260 and they are about the same price so the 260 seems like the better buy

Yes you heard right but I read in other forms that they can handel up to 120c, on the 260 the numbers are slow compar to the 4870. have a look at PALiT Radeon
