Total build with the price of everything up there except counting the i7 2600k and GTX 460 is $821.93 USD excluding tax and shipping.

Total price of what I'm paying for everything is $421.95 excluding tax and shipping.

I'll be using this build to play games on 1920x1080, games like Starcraft 2. Any idea on what settings I can play on smoothly?

Thanks!

Well my aunt could only hook me up with a GTX 460 2GB and she said even though GTX 560 would be coming out soon she wouldn't be able to get that for me until probably a year. I'll upgrade my graphics card in about a year though.
