Hello, please let me start by saying I love this site and often find solutions. I'd also like to thank all of you ahead of time for your help.
I'm looking to build my girlfriend a gaming PC. It's my second build, first build on my own and I would like your recommendations. I have chosen everything but the GPU since I'm not sure what is good for this particular Intel build. Here are the specs so far. I'm in Canada and shopping online at newegg, nxic and canadacomputers.

Case: NZXT Source 210
Mother Board: ASUS Z87-A LGA1150
CPU: i5 4670K
GPU: GTX 660 or GTX 770 (I was thinking ~200$ GPU)
PSU: Corsair TX650M
RAM: G.Skill Trident X Series (2x4Gbps) x2
DVD-R: LG Internal Super Multi Drive
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
SSD: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 120G

a 760 would fit nicely, a 660 is a little under powered if you're doing 1080p gaming. Obviously a 770 would be perfect, but i'd shoot for a 760 minimum.

The GTX 660 can be found for just over $200. The GTX 770 is way out of that price range. A GTX 760 would be a great upgrade from the GTX 660 if you can squeeze it into the budget.

After reviewing some of the GTX 700 series. I think the GTX 760 would be perfect for this build. I now have a new question. Asus, MSI or Gigabyte?

That mostly depends on the cooler used. The Asus card I linked to above has an excellent cooler.
