  1. At that Res, your GPU is vastly overkill. No reason to get any more than a 6770 with that monitor, unless you change it to 1080p.
  2. Best answer
    Yes, except the CPU. The i7 is overkill for gaming, and the i5 performs the same in gaming. Get the i5-3570K instead for gaming. I'd get a better monitor. The monitor has a res. of 1366x768 which is terrible for gaming, You can get a better monitor for $150 that's 1080p, and from a better company.

  4. I'd rather get the Samsung 830 for $120 than the Agility 4, as it is faster.
