Main use is for gaming. Hoping to max out SWTOR when it comes out and hopefully high-ish settings for skyrim.

Heres the setup as of right now:

MOBO:
ASRock Z68 PRO3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=13-157-...

GPU:
EVGA 01G-P3-1561-AR GeForce GTX 560 Ti FPB (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

CPU:
i5 2500k
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PSU:
Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

RAM:
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

HDD:
Western Digital Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Case:
COOLER MASTER HAF 922
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

DVDDrive:

Monitor: (yes i know i could get a cheaper ASUS or something, but really like this one)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

So i am pretty sure this will run at max settings, but will it be able to run at high resolutions at max with decent FPS? (1920x1080) Also, if you have any recommendations to save a little money please let me know as i am trying to cut down the cost a little, but with close to same performance. (Will wait for bulldozer to come out before i order).

Also, am i really missing anything that i will need to order other than windows 7?

Thanks in advance!

i'd recommend a samsung spinpoint f3 over your current hdd
also, get a 650-750w power supply, so you can sli 560ti's in the future.
for that size of monitor, it should be quite a bit less, but it's up to you.
