Is it good enough? It is overkill. It'll easily run 100+fps on 720p. The 760 is an amazing GPU and not really designed for 720p gaming, more like 1080p gaming.

If you don't plan on upgrading your monitor then I'd suggest dropping down to a 650ti boost.

Well my monitor goes up to 1080p I just don't know if it could run it. So incase if the frames start to drop I'd be ok. :D

You will play all games at around 60fps on Ultra at 1080p. (except Crysis 3)
Great build. The 965 is "old" but still amazing. Nicely done.

I agree. Do u mind getting a CPU cooler so u could OC your processor. In such case, even Crysis 3 won't be a problem.

yeah Maxime506 is right. You should get a $25-30 CPU cooler.
