Video card can be swapped for a 7970, 7950, or 670 depending on anything else you might need IE keyboard mouse and monitor. But as a standard this is what you want.

Certainly right! However, for 200 bucks you are set for any crossfire/sli setup in any generation of cards with a very nice, fully modular, platinum rated Corsair PSU backed by a 7 year warranty. You certainly can skimp though I wouldn't.

Here is a cheaper PSU

And you can drop down to a 670 or a 7950 also. Or if you prefer different models of the 670/7950 they are all roughly the same in pricing. The only things I would recommend changing in the build are the video cards, power supply, and optical drives. Downsizing the SSD to 128GB Samsung 840 Pro would be a viable change also. Anyway, hope that gets you started, gl!

Change PSU and RAM and you'll be good to go. The RAM is too tall for a CPU cooler, PSU is way too expensive a 80plus bronze 700w is enough for that system even overclocked.
