i will be making a purchase in about a week, this is what i have selected. i chose to get it all at microcenter since they are fairly close to me and offer the instore pick up with out having to even pay online. i would like feedback on the selections, if anything wont work together or if im making a bad choice with anything

http://cart.microcenter.com/cart.aspx?RedirectUrl=http:...

its a little more than i wanted to spend but i origanly wasnt counting for the moniter and opted for a more expensive gpu becuase it had better rating than the 660ti and it also comes with 2 free games. i look forward to hearing what you have to say Thanks

Win except for the PSU. Try an XFX, Seasonic, higher end Corsair. Check Johnnyguru for PSU reviews.

Make sure the GPU has two or more fans (reference models are idiotically loud).

Speaking of noise, the default CPU profile for the ASRock is max - change it to auto, target level 1, 60C. You can also tie your rear case fan to CPU2 header so it spins up as your CPU fan spins up (assuming the CM case fan is PWM).

JED nailed it about the psu . That one is junk , organized slightly

Use only 80+ bronze or better power supplies
