I am building a PC and I need to know what setting I can play on the better games like Battlefield 3 and The Witcher 2. Any other video game suggestions would be helpful.

A $10.74 shipping charge on a $24.99 mouse! Good thing you have that $10 rebate.

CM Hyper 212 Evo (instead of 212+)
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683...


Not much to pick apart.
It's a good list, has everything you need, everything is compatible and all good quality.

You can leave out the Arctic Silver 5. The thermal compound that comes in the CM Hyper 212 Evo is quite good.

Would I need to further overclock the GPU since it is already the OC edition

It will run @ the stock speed 3.4GHz (3.8GHz TurboBoost).
The K model you're paying a bit extra for has the un-lock CPU multiplier that makes OC'ing easier.
The CM Hyper 212 Evo will help keep it cooler if/when you OC the CPU.

Get a GTX670 instead of the HD7950.

@ the OP. You have a psu meant to run two of those cards, yet a board that only runs a single card. Either you have the wrong psu, or the wrong board up there. Also you don't need to purchase any thermal compound like that Arctic Silver seeing how CM cpu coolers come with a small tube of MX-4 which is about as good as it gets in regards to thermal paste.
