Hi Peeps

I’m building a new gaming rig, below are the specs but the thing is this, I’m going to be also buying a Sony LED 40” instead of a monitor! The model is KDL-40NX803, it has 200hz refresh rate and is obviously true HD 1080p. My question is will my games look good on it? How do games look running at 1920x1080, are the textures up close detailed for example? Also do most games play at 16:9 widescreen? I don’t want to have big black letterbox lines. Have a look at the specs below and tell me what you think, will Crysis 2 run at it’s highest detail?

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T 'Thuban' @ 3.3GHz x 6 cores
Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5, AMD 890FX
8GB Corsair Vengeance (2x4GB) DDR3 1600MHz
ATi Radeon HD 6970 2GB
1TB sata II 7200RPM hard drive
Blu Ray reader combo drive
Creative Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional 7.1 soundcard
650 watt silent 80+ effeciency Modular PSU
Coolermaster HAF X Gaming Tower Case
Creative Labs 5.1 Speakers 50 W RMS Sound System

just get the 1090T and OC it yourself
890 FX is unnecessary save and get the 890GX
1600mhz isn't needed get some CAS 7 DDR3 1333mhz RAM instead
Save another $80 and get a 6950 2GB and flash the bios to a 6970 2GB
would recommend 750w + PSU instead of 650w PSU's run best at 50-60 percent of a full load,
HAF X is HUGE, why not a 932?

I'll take a check for all the cash i just saved you ;) 

and chances are you'll possibly hit 40-50 fps on Crysis 2 with everything on Enthusiast settings.
