Hey guys, I'm building my first PC and I'd like to know if this setup will run well with most of the high end games out there. If there are better options feel free to comment.
-thanks

Sorry about those links, i fixed them. What's wrong with kingston ram? Is it bad? It had perfect reviews on newegg.

I, too, prefer Corsair RAM. Mobo should be ok, but I also lean to the ASRock Extreme 4 (being an owner). And yeah, a cooler. 212 EVO is standard. Food for thought, why not an SSD for 100 bucks, maybe drop a bit on the HDD?

you can get a 500 GB caviar blue HDD for 69.99 @ newegg
edit: you could also save a couple bucks by switching your case to the HAF 912.
