Ultra high settings on everything without a doubt. (At 1366x768)

You only need like 350W for that setup too by the way.

^ Agreed about the psu.

It'll be fine. If you want to maximise your gaming potential (or get better value for money, presuming you're mainly focused on gaming) you could probably downgrade your processor to something like a sandy bridge 2400, save $30 and put it into a slightly better gpu. Your gpu would bottleneck your cpu. But as the above poster has said, no real issue- you'd run everything fine on that res.

Yep, Low resolution monitors, require almost no power needed to get max on most any game. so a low level GPU and mid-high end CPU will be fine

You really want to save money then forget about spending 200+ on a the case/psu. Instead buy a refurb desktop for $400 and upgrade the gpu for $200. Bam! I just saved you $800 bucks!

Thanks. I was worried about HD 7770 not powerful enough :p 

I need HDD dock, so that case is a must. And I want efficiency, that's the lowest gold certified PSU I could find (at local store)

On another note, I mean that is serious overkill for that resolution (not so much the video card, it's good for ultra on 1680x1050). I would seriously consider upgrading your monitor first to something 1920x1080 which is the standard today. A good 22" can be found pretty cheap around $130.
