    Keep in mind, you can always upgrade parts later. Get the best of what you can afford now, and then you can upgrade things such as the SSD or GPU later.

    The hd 7870 I recommended will run just about any game out there on max settings at comfortable frame rates. If you wish, you can add about $30-50 and get the hd 7950 which would be amazing. Hope this helps; good luck!

    Yes, I recommend this one...

    GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD GeForce GTX 670

    If that doesn't fit the budget, get this one...

    SAPPHIRE FleX 100352FLEX Radeon HD 7950

    You could also put the extra $100 into a SSD if you want...

    Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD1 2.5" 128GB
  9. Personally, I'd take an SSD. Mine has really made a difference. Know how you hang for a solid minute on bootup before you can launch anything? Not only has my boot time gone way down, but that hang time has been reduced to about four seconds.
