You did your HW well, but you should know that the GTX 660 is going to be replaced by the GTX 760 which is going to be announced on Tuesday - so i'd suggest waiting for that :)

i know, i know, but from what i read here on tom's hardware its going to be a tad more expensive, cant remember how much exactaly, but my budget is stretched thin as it is, i cant upgrade to that... but would they drop the price of the 660 when the 760 laucnhes?

The 660 might drop but often replaced models don't... I'd suggest you wait for the 760's price to be announced and THEN make you final decision...

that's where i saw it, 299 would be way too much, and besides the 256bit over the 192 bit i dont see much difference in them... but i will wait anyway
