Heyyo! I'm going for a $750 gaming build and i just need some final tips and final adjustments

Purchase: August 15-25
Not Needed: Mouse, monitor, keyboard
Crossfire: No, never, maybe in 3 years if i can find the same card

I need to get a little lower in price, i'm like $50 over my budget AR... :p  but i want performance like below!

Games I Play: COD 2,4,5 TF2, Those i play online... Medal of Honor type of games i usually just play the campaign since i enjoy the campaigns in HD on those games and like AC...

Will the dual fan gpu's overheat less?

And Will my PSU be enough? I won't crossfire at all. but my Card is demanding and so is the cpu.

should i wait for bulldozer? or ivy bridge? Because if i do i gotta buy it NEXT august since i wont be in America when it comes out or the new keplar gpu's?

Okay so This is my build:

$80 Case --- COOLER MASTER Storm Enforcer SGC-1000-KWN1 Black SECC / ABS Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case ATX PS2 / EPS 12V

$80 HDD --- 2x Seagate Barracuda ST3500413AS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

He can further save money by going for a cheaper set of G.Skill or Kingstons RAM. I recommend 1600MHz as that's the sweet spot for Sandy Bridge processors. Newegg has some under $40.

@Why_Me, That power supply isn't modular, modular is what i've been looking for but the one i have now is also pretty nice.

and I'll check out the Motherboard and it's amperage and stuff

That is all fine. Back to your question about waiting for Bulldozer or Ivy bridge, Bulldozer will probably be in the same price range and performance up to date is all speculation, Ivy bridge will be a tad more expensive looking back at the price difference between LGA1156 and LGA1366. Is there a reason to wait I do not think so.

I'm not changing my case, i like it.

I already have the same exact combo with the HDD + optical

I want a modular PSU...

I already have a RAM bundle

And the GPU 6950 is too much
