So I'm building my first PC in at least 10 years so I'm a little rusty. I did some research and have purchased all of the components except for my video card. I'm going to be playing mostly RTS games with some RPG such like skyrim, civ V and Diablo 3 whenever that comes out. I need a little advice on the video card part of it.

So far I've got.
Motherboard. MSI Z68A-GD55 (B3) LGA1155
Processor. Intel Core i5-2500K
Memory CORSAIR XMS3 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
HDD HITACHI Deskstar 7K1000.D HDS721075DLE630 (0F13179) 750GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s
Power Supply OCZ ZS Series 650W 80PLUS Bronze High Performance

What do you guys think?

You seem to have a pretty decent budget there so i would recommend one of these

Its one of the new 560 ti with 448 cores. That should handle anything you can throw at it and with overclocking it can pass a gtx 570. and if you can afford it get 2 and sli them.

Yeah, budget really isn't that big of a deal. But I don't want to spend 1000 on one video card either.
