Here are the different part i ordered (i got 24h to cancel/swap anything if it's not okay)
i5 2500k @3.3 ghz
Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3, Z68, LGA1155, PCI-E 3.0, SLI/CFX
Corsair Vengeance Blue, 2x4GB, DDR3-1600, CL9@1.5V
Seasonic X-760 (SS-760KM) Gold - 760 Watt
Samsung SSD 830Series D-Kit, MLC, 128GB, SATA-3, 2.5 Zoll

I dont know what GPU to take. I mainly play CoD4, CoD: MW3 and BF3.
I dont play with everything maxed out. And i'm not sure about what monitor to get, but i dont think i can afford a 120hz at the moment.

I think i'm going to get this monitor: Asus VS228H, 22" FULL HD TFT
How many hz does it have??

If you got other suggestions for the monitor, please tell me.

I can afford the GTX 680, but i'd rather take something lower, since between 50 and 55 fps i dont mind because i dont even play on ultra settings.

Get the best card you can get now, you may regret it later.

You think so?? I can afford the GTX 680, but i wanted to go for the Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Dual Fan.
But i might go for a nvidia 570 or something, apparently AMD drivers aren't always very well functioning.

I honestly do not see the point in spending that much money on a video card, but its your computer.

Buying a substantially expensive card with the intent to "future proof" your computer is folly. Buy something modest that meets your needs today, and worry about what will meet your needs in 3 years when you cross that road, its more economical.
