  1. Looks good. Take a look at the GTX 560 ti

  2. The thermaltake psu is a weak point .

    It has a small red voltage switch on the rear which is a sure sign its not 80+ compliant , and wont be able to deliver stable voltage and current .
    Expect problems if you load it

    You can get a Radeon 7850 for $250

    so no point considering the gtx 560 ti

    That Thermaltake PSU is not good quality. Try this instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371044
    It is $5 cheaper, 80+ Bronze, has more wattage, and more amps on the 12v rail, plus it is much better quality.
