Why would you use a gpu designed for rendering in a gaming rig?

Switch the motherboard to something with a Z68 or Z77 chipset.
You can also downgrade the i7 to a top end i5.
750GB power supply? I assume you mean 750W, will be plenty.
Increase the ram speed from 1333MHz to something more like 1866-2133MHz.
Bin the Belkin wireless card, if you must have one go with someone else like D-Link or NetGear.

As other have said, switch the graphics card to a NVidia GTX670/680 or Radeon HD7950/7970 and increase your monitor to 24"+ which supports 1920x1080 or greater resolution.

Lastly, you should be able to build that system for about $1500.

EDIT: With the changes suggested you won't have a system capable of running most games, it'll run all games.

That original spec is hilarimoose. My favourite bit is the "Network Card Belkin F5D7011 Wireless G Plus 2.4GHz 108Mbps Notebook Card".

are you from southern ontario? seeing as that quote is from guelph, if you are in that area, i would probably suggest checking out a canada computers instead and get a quote from them. I have found their quotes laughable at some times having worked in a computer store next to one but for high end builds they tend to put the right stuff together and their prices are good being they are their own supplier.
