Mostly i want cheap price, durability/problem free. Not planning to run on ultra high settings. Most parts pulled from NCIX (no shipping, in store pick up, if possible future suggestions pulled from NCIX only). No overclocking but maybe upgrade for future

Please offer your opinions/critiques/suggestions, much appreciated! If possible save more $$ + space for monitor (22 inch is fine) Thanks!

1- get the GTX 760 . it is faster and at 250$ and has PhysX support.
2-get the Samsung 840 PRO not the non pro one . it is 2 times faster in writing.
3-Get the Gigabyte Sniper M5 mother board it has the best sound onbard and a Killer Gaming LAN for good price
4- get DDR3 1600 RAM not 1333.
