This is the last thread I'm posting on the new system I'm going to buy. I just wanted to be sure if it will fit my needs, which btw, are editing in FULL HD in Premiere Pro CSS, and playing some nice games like FIFA 12, PES 12, Sims 3 in high quality, and I'm prolly going to try others like Mass Effect 3 and the upcoming Resident Evil.

I already have a hard drive, a monitor, a sound card, speakers, mouse, keyboard, case, etc.

Motherboard: The only doubt I have on this motherboard is whether my GTX 560 will fit in it.

CPU: I'm not planning to overclock so this is it for the CPU.

GPU: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-560-Ti-GTX56...
I know the reference card isn't the best option, but let's face it, it's cheap and nice, and with a hack I can use the CUDA acceleration for Premiere Pro. How is it good for the games I'm playing though? And for editing in general?

RAM: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Profile-PC3-128... 8GB is enough for now.

I'd really like not going over this budget. Let me know if this is ok and if there is any better for what I need and for my budget, of course.

You can save ten bucks with mushkin ram from newegg (link broken). Don't know about your cpu. I found some 1155 cpus for half price on craigslist the other day, but that's a longshot and extremely rare. Bought them from an engineer with three kids, one only 9 or 10 years old and a hardcore gamer.

Yes the GPU will "fit" on your mobo.
The CPU is fine for your intentions.
The GPU will play the games you have listed.
The RAM could be bought cheaper. 8gbs should be enough.
