Your looking at $952 for this build. A bit more expensive than alvine put together but I just included more of what you will need. I recommend the CPU cooler just cause Intel's stock heat sinks are pretty crappy. I think the GTX 460 is more than enough graphical power for you. That 7770 is a bit more costly but would also be a good solution. I am currently using a GTX 460 and i run Battlefield 3 on high settings with no issues at all. I ran Ultra for awhile but the game would crash after an hour so I lowered it and no more issues. So yea, it will run whatever your gonna need it to. And you can always slap in another one and SLI it if you need more power in the future. Also this Motherboard will support Next Gen Ivy Bridge Processors. So in a year or two you can upgrade to an Ivy Bridge and a new Graphics card and be off on your merry again.
