Assuming you're gaming in the US: Get a 7950. Same price but faster.

CM PSUs aren't the best; I'd get one of these: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/ocz-power-supply-oczzt750w 750W is enough for 7950 or 7970 CF.

Get a Z77 mobo. Newegg US will give you 8GB free RAM if you buy the ASRock Z77 Extreme4 from them.

The 660 Ti is faster in some games, slower in other games than the 7950, flip a coin. Either card will be a great gaming card.

What is your budget? I say up the RAM to 16GB (for future considerations), and 2TB HDDs are only $20 to $30 more than 1TB HDDs. Newegg has the WD Intellipower 2TB for $90 right now IIRC.

Use a Z77 based motherboard

the ram needs to be 1.5 volts or less

the comp needs a 500 watt psu , or 650 watts if you might SLI at a later time

use the money you save on the psu to buy a small capacity SSD as a cache drive
