I posted here two weeks ago (http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/343601-31-1000-gaming#t2578645), and got very good suggestions that I am planning to go ahead with, but as suggested, I figured I should check back one or two days before I buy it. Thanks in advance for your time and help. Here is what was suggested:


AMD 7950, 2500k, 8gb corsair vengeance, PC power and cooling 760w psu, Asrock extreme4 z77, HAF 912
