Monitor Included in the build. I would prefer 22in+.

I would like to be able to play games such as bf 3 and skyrim on ultra aswell as next gen games.

I already own a HAF 932 case, aswell as windows 7.

I plan to over clock.

Graphics: im currently look at the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB Video Card (GV-N770OC-2GD)

I live in Canada if that makes a difference for pricing.

Thanks In Advance Doomblade

I do not think that dropping the SSD is a good idea. You should go for the build i suggested as you can have a SSD and really there i not much difference between the MSI card as it has good fans and you can overclock it. There is really no point in dropping the SSD when you can fit it for the budget. Having an SSD makes your computer a lot faster. Really, i would always have an SSD whenever i could.

So take my suggestion and go with the build i suggested, it is indeed a good build. It should serve you good.
