Prefered Website
E-SHOP.gr...it is the cheapest in my country and doesnt charge me any shipping because it has a store in my city.

Greece

Parts not required
Keyboard,Mouse,Headset

Overclocking
NO (May overclock in some time but i wont need a cpu cooler for now)

SLI
NO

Monitor Resolution
1980x1080

So, as you may have noticed i have not included a video card in my rig, that's why iam not building the pc right now but in 3-4 months when the gtx 600 series will have come out and the gtx 500 series prices will have greatly decreased....i will go for a nvidia gpu...which one do you sugest me for then?? Is it worth to buy a gtx 680??
What can i do to make the system cheaper without losing any significant power?? Are 750 watt enough for a single gtx 580 570 or 680 while still keeping the wattage delivered to each part of the system fine??

AND MOST OF ALL HOW POWERFULL IS MY SYSTEM WITH A GTX 570?? HOW POWERFULL WITH A GTX 580 AND HOW POWERFULL WILL IT PROBABLY BE WITH THE GTX 680?? Will it be able to run Shogun 2 Total War maxed out dx 11 hd with more than 8000 men fighting and with more than 40 fps?? What about the next total war game, do you think it will be able to run it at the same standarts??

If you don't SLI buy Corsair TX650W it will be more than enough. 580 is better than 570. 680 nobody know how it will be.

The HDD Μνήμη Buffer is 32 MB, try getting one with 64 MB.

The motherboard you are getting is Z68, it is better to go with a Z77 like GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-D3H.

As for graphic card, the better one is the GTX 680 from what you´ve listed, but a much better deal is to go with a HD 7970 http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-benc...
