Come and ask in 6 months again, doesnt make sense to do now because suggestions will change a lot, new prices/rabates/products ect.

Almost all current and upcoming games, mix between mid-high-max. Settings 40-60+ fps on a 1080p screen.

Over budget, but i dont recommend going below these parts...
They have a good quality, some good rabates, nice p/p

637.67 != 500...

Do wait, because the new HD8xxx (or HD9xxx) cards will likely be out by then.

There's a lot to change in that PSU, but I really can't be bothered if it's going to be so out of date in another 6 months. That's a long time in the tech world.
