Things that I have:

* Monitor
* Keyboard
* Mouse
* 2x4GB RAM 1600 DDR3 Corsair Vengeance (could replace with 1x8gb)
* 128GB SSD

Things potentially want and will pay extra for:

* High refresh rate monitor (LCD)

Thanks for any assistance. Looking forward to getting back in the fray!

Notes: will be needing a copy of windows 7 64bit. Don't necessarily need hdd right away.

No don't care so much about OC. That card is a little too expensive, considering the rest of the rig.

She let me bump it up a few $$$'s. I made some modifications. Hopefully didn't shoot myself in the foot.

Will that build play Planetside 2 at the highest settings, because I've heard its a very power hogging game.
