  1. There is no point using a 2600/3770 for gaming

    use a 2500K or 3570K

    The GTX 570 is last generation . The GTX 670 can fit in your budget
    You only need a 500 watt psu

    RAM for sb and ib processors should be rated at 1.5 volts or less . It would run with the stuff you have listed but you'd have no warranty on the processor

    Switch the 7950 for the GTX 670 (+30):

    Fermi is old, hot and eats energy. Move onto the next platform. The MB doesn't allow for SLI in the future, the power supply is a bit expensive. The OCZ will give you similar performance, it's modular so it'll be better for cable management and it's got solid reviews with a large $20 MIR.
