1) One bench mark for me is CoD World at War. Would this thing be able to run it on max?
2) How would it do on games like FC2?
3) I have a small room so hoping for something that won't raise the temperature or be too loud.

^+1. Maybe drop down to a 650W EA or TX PSU, it would still allow for future crossfire and save you a few bucks. You could get some lower latency RAM, but that set is a steal with the MIR. And maybe the Illusion as well?
Edit: Regarding your question about maxing games out, what is your resolution?
