Im either going to go with that motherboard or asrock z77 extreme4 (can get both under $80 at microcenter.)
But im not sure on a graphics card, i would like to keep it under 900 but i could go up a bit if its necessary.
I was looking at a 7950 or 670 but would i be better with something else? i need help because i plan on buying the rest of my stuff this weekend and if i can i will also get the graphics card.

I would go with the 7950 over the 670.

Arma II is a very hard game for any computer to run just because of the poor coding. I used to run it on my 6970 on high or so. Seeing as the 7950 is much faster, you should be able to run it smoothly.

All of the other games should run great on either card.

I legit bought this same build with some minor differences and an added SSD yesterday. I went with the EVGA 670 FTW edition, so sexy. I'm going to pick up the ASUS V LK at microcenter tomorrow as well.
