that's great but you can get a 7970 for $380 here, no need for GHZ edition, you can easily oc it to around 1100mhz+:

Just wanna chime in on the only thing I know about lol. I have a DeathAdder and a Naga. I switch based on what game I'm playing. Both are amazing.

Keyboard wise, if you can somehow fit in the budget, Grab a BlackWidow Ultimate. Been using mine for over a year with no problems, and it's stupidly responsive thanks to it being mechanical.

Why would he want to pay $100 more for a 680 it's only ten percent faster then a 670 and i was trying to save him money there is a ssd included. ;)
