I gave a Core i5 3570k and an ASUS GTX 760 OC edition
Fraps tells me I get 60fps on skyrim, shogun 2, gta 4, Fallout New vegas. (I only have a 60Hz monitor)
I've been playing some Ghosts multi player this weekend (It was free on steam yay!) and I maxed out the settings, I didn't get fraps to measure the fps but it was easily playable, maybe a slight drop in frames
Also if you go on http://uk.hardware.info/ and search the graphics card you're interested in, they record the FPS of various games like BF3 Crysis 3
Hope this helped

The advantages ov having an SSD are much faster read/write times, and if you boot off of it, much faster boot times.
