Thanks in advance for the help :) 


All the parts you have a pretty good, nothing to say. If you want a little more power, take a better graphics card and you should be more than fine. I have almost the same setup and it's working like a beast (except on Far Cry 3 which i have to lower AA).

Here's what i would take instead :

Motherboard : Asus P8Z77-V LX (129.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Processor : Intel Core i5 3570k (229.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Ram : G.Skill Ripjaws 2x4GB 1866MHz Cas9 (49.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Power supply : Rosewill 750W (The one you've picked) (89.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Graphics Card : XfX Radeon 7970 (Currently 369.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Hard drive : The drive you chose (84.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Dvd Drive : The one you chose (19.99$) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That total price is around 1015$ but you forgot something didn't you ? The Case ! Choose a case and that should make around 1100$. If you can't go as high as 1100$ then take a GTX670 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) that is 20$ cheaper or go with the 7950 (The cheaper you can get) or even the 660Ti (which i'm currently using)

No not really. There's only 12% performance increase vs 23% money increase.

Better go with the Galaxy GTX 670 at 349.99 (19% performance increase for 17% money increase)
