Thanks for your response, I'm looking to get a SSD as the boot drive as well. Also I think maybe could go cheaper on the graphics card? A gpu that still plays games at max though, also what about an intel i5 3570 ivy bridge?

Any questions just ask.

The processor doesn't have as big an impact as the graphics card does in gaming, and almost all games only utilize two cores of the processor anyways.

You can find a cheaper graphics card, anything from 7850-7970 ghz edition all play games very well at high specs.
