Help with my soon-to-be Gaming PC.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/fBJB

This will be my new build but before I get it I have a few questions.

1. Will the Graphics Card fit into a Cooler Master HAF 912 and if not can you give me any case recommendations?

2. I also wanted to know if I had chosen a good Motherboard. If not yet again please give me some recommendations.

3. Is a 1TB HDD too much because I hear some pople say it is.

4. Will this build be able to play games at Max Settings? Because that is what I want from it.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and please answer my questions

  1. The 7950 drops in price next week to $300. It's superior to the 660 Ti, and both will fir in the case. Mobo is great. For storage, you WANT to have a lot. 500GB gets cramped and you have to worry about space. With 1TB, you can do whatever you want, and it almost never gets full. With the 7950 and 660Ti, yes you will.
  2. Thanks.
  3. Also, the RAM is 1.65v, which, over time damages your CPU. Get this kit:

  4. 750w psu for headroom if and when you decide to add another one of those cards in SLI.
