You got everything right, don't bother with a 3770k/2700k for gaming.

Are you in canada? Because if you are not, that card can be had cheaper in newegg.


And while I like sapphire, gigabyte has the better deal:

And that power supply is a bit overkill unless you want to crossfire in the future???

Get the gigabyte, its $299 with 4 games and thanks to the newest drivers it stomps all over the 660 ti.

Pretty Good, a 3770k will not offer performance advantages over a 3570k in games, only in applications that utilize its multi threading (think video editing/rendering).

I can't recommend an SSD more highly, they make your experience so much better in day to day use.

If you were thinking about a 660 ti, compare it to a 7870, the 7870 will get you the same performance, but it is quite a bit cheaper.
