I'm planning on building a computer with these specs but I'm not sure if these are good specs for the price. Any opinions or advice greatly accepted to improve this build. Thanks!

I'm planning to buy all these parts from NCIX.com

I'm planning to use it for gaming, photoshop, and some 3D modelling. Games I play are battlefield, skyrim, crysis 2 etc.

Do you think that I will be able to run the latest games at 50-60 fps at ultra settings and 1080p with this build?

Nice system!

EVGA has a GTX 660Ti 3GB with backplate for about the same price (with rebate) as the 2 GBs that you are considering.

A 660TI will definitely get those frame rates. Here's something I would suggest:

Thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely go for the 3gb then.

Catch it on sale, promo, rebate. I paid something like $288 4 weeks ago and I am expecting a $20 rebate on top of it. (net $268)
