You got everything right, don't bother with a 3770k/2700k for gaming.

Are you in canada? Because if you are not, that card can be had cheaper in newegg.


And while I like sapphire, gigabyte has the better deal:

And that power supply is a bit overkill unless you want to crossfire in the future???

Get the gigabyte, its $299 with 4 games and thanks to the newest drivers it stomps all over the 660 ti.

Some change i made, that gfx card at ~360$ is much expensive for a 7950, i put the in the list the best single card/single gpu out there (7970 ghz edition and comes with 3 games), also put low profile ram instead and a better monitor, put a much less expensive psu but also made by seasonic and change the case for a fractal r4 silent much less expensive.

Pretty Good, a 3770k will not offer performance advantages over a 3570k in games, only in applications that utilize its multi threading (think video editing/rendering).

I can't recommend an SSD more highly, they make your experience so much better in day to day use.

If you were thinking about a 660 ti, compare it to a 7870, the 7870 will get you the same performance, but it is quite a bit cheaper.

"I am going to be using this computer to play ultra on everything".
At 1080p ultra/maxout for future games you're gonna need a high end card like 7970 or 670 gtx.
