    hmm what an awesome system. short answer is yes it will run it on high at that res. But why would you have such a system and skimp on the GPU. id be looking to put in a 660ti or above for some nice gaming on a 1080p monitor. 1366 x 768 is a waste for that system. If your shelling out on all of that, a new monitor and a 660ti is only gonna cost an additional 300 if you use the money for the 7770 aswell.
  2. It will run well at that resolution but that GPU is very entry level.

    If it was me (and there was any chance of getting a 1080p monitor in the near term) and that was the extent of my budget, I'd sacrifice the CPU/mobo for i5-3350p/H77, drop the pro SSD for the standard 840, maybe even skip the Evo, and throw everything that I saved into a faster GPU.

    I kind of need onboard wifi on my mobo and kind of want a good processor too :P
    idk about the gpu, but I'll put in a 750w psu

    you psu is fine, no need to change. it's perfect for that system.
