Hi, I am trying to make sure I'm getting the best bang for my buck on my new gaming PC which I want to put together January 1st 2011. I was wondering how this PC would hold up against games like Crysis, and how it might perform overall. Really I'm just looking for a basic rating, or any suggestions the Tom's Hardware community can provide.

Things u can change in above is to drop SSD as it wont affect any gaming performance and get the new upcoming 6900 series GPU from AMD releasing in a week or so. 750w PSU is fine for 2 x 6870.
