Hey folks, this is going to be my first apparition onto this forum I am just asking for people's suggestions... *Should I change anything?* or *Should I upgrade something?*

What I am looking for at the momment is a System that's going to be strong enough for Witcher 2 ran on max graphics to give you an idea of what im looking for as of gaming wise haha. Also looking for maximum speed and smoothness of control in the game so... Max FPS, Max Resolution, (might use 2 24'' Samsung LED 1080P screens)
Max Graphic, if you want to add anything you're free to go I accept any suggestion anyhow... I did some reseach afterall so that I am prepared to hear all kinds of suggestions and I will be posting every links of every item I am about to buy to build my first complet System!

Chassis: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Motherboard: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Graphic: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
CPU: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Powersupply: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...
Solid State Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Hard Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Memory: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...
Blue-Ray Drive: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1682...

As far as OverClocking! Yes indeed I am building this so that I can exploit the OC as much as possible to make my computer much faster reason why I choose the Graphic Card and the Memory (memory due to its Cas and Timing) (graphic card because of the high Core Clock and the high Memory Clock)... and yes I am going to use Window 7 64-bit Premium Edition... for maximum Memory GB and speed...

Thanks a lot to ya'll who will be kind enough to help me out with this computer build and to tell me if its built right or wrong!

Cheers, Alex

I would switch your cpu and mb
The 955 and the 970 are identical so stick with that and overclock it yourself to the 970
I switched your motherboard to be AM3+ so if in the future you wanted to upgrade to a bulldozer you could

Since you want to overclock I would also include a cpu cooler

I don't think this'll max Witcher, especially not at an ultrahigh resolution (2 screens). I think you'd need a 580 and a 2500K for that.

Thanks for the suggestion Flyboy86 ( I am also trying to stay with my budget ) ill be looking em up really soon as I am a little bit busy configuring my brother's computer and Kajabla I will probably not use two monitors for Witcher 2 due to it being useless really... Thumbs up for the replies oh before I forget what's the the huge diffrence between AM3 and AM3+?

Reason why I am asking as many questions as possible is because I will be ording all the listed items tomorrow night so I need to make sure I have a solid build before buying and as far as graphic I think I made a good choise did I? And thanks I will be overclocking the CPU for sure to 3.5Ghz I have a tech working with me who's been Overclocking computer for 35 years he will be in charge of that haha

I hear you haha hurts a bit to see that and forgot to mention I changed my Powersupply due to.. actually saving 130$ on the part... since its 54% off and its a 1000W http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681... and reason why I didnt go for more storage in my SSD is because I will only have 1 game installed at a time on the Drive itself and because I have my external drive with all the games that I dont play anymore and I will add up the Cooler thats for sure

Actually an additional question here... I was wondering if I should actually go for faster memory... due to me overclocking the whole System.

Alright that works but reason why I had choosen mine is because of the low Cas latency and the Timing though but I will probably buy the Ripjaws you suggested due to it being a bit faster

I looked it up and for the diffrence of 10$ its much more worth spending money on the 990FX AM3+ hence it'll stay updated for a longer time and will be less needed to upgrade it later on thanks so alright I changed the CPU the Motherboard the Memory Powersupply and still my graphic card doesn't need to be changed! Im impressed haha
