Hi guys so here it is, the system I hope to build. I would just like a more experienced opinion on my parts and if there is anything I should change (keeping under the same budget) etc. I'm planning on using this for games like diablo 3, Crysis, Borderlands 2, Battlefield 3 etc all on highest settings and also I will be using it for a little light video editing with sony vegas pro 11.

this costs a bit more than your system but it can easily max out any game on 1080p

Is the GTX 670 really worth the extra $235 tho, It seems like a waste to me and that build doesnt include a monitor so ill probably need to add at least another $150 to that. Also would my build be able to max out games at 1080p?

it will only play games at high-ultra with no aa. the 670 can play games with max settings with 8x aa no problem. if you dont need max settings, then get the asus 7850 directcu2 as it has a better cooler tha gigabyte
