Budget Range: $1000 After Rebates

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Diablo 3, primary home computing, Blue Ray movies, etc. (will be running to my living room tv)

Additional Comments: I would like a quiet PC, unless performance will suffer. Willing to spend a few bucks here to decrease noise. I would like a Gen 3 mobo for future upgradability. I don't need an optical hard drive at this time, 120GB SSD will be plenty for now.

if gaming is your priority then why go with an ssd? it will improve your load times but the fps will stay the same
get a better gpu and a regular hd

It will also be my home computer, I really want an SSD for great load times.

From what I've read the 560 Ti cards are great at that resolution. In a year or two I plan to upgrade to a 3.0 card.
