nice setup, but you didn't answer me what resolution will you play at, if you're playing at 1080P the GTX 560ti or the HD 6950 would be the great option, anything else won't struggle that much with the upcoming games,,,besides you'll experience a lack of FPS if you get anything under these two models

I have not built the system yet, but I want to be able to play at 1680x1050. I think I will go with this card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161363
 
if you haven't built it yet, get a better PSU and a better GPU if you're a hardcore gamer, this card will get your job done at this resolution but if you're going to play Crysis 2 at max settings, you'll find a lag of performance besides, other higher models are more future proof and better performance

Alright thanks for all you help :)
 

yes, ocz modxtream get awful reviews..... like this one
http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/OCZ-ModXStream-Pro-600-W-Power-Supply-Review/936/9
soooo awful. (if you could hear my voice you would hear the extreme sarcasm). before you make up total crap maybe you should READ A REVIEW. You should read a Thermaltake review and notice that all but their Toughpower series are overpriced/overrated crap, before you go recommending them.
 
PSU:
Wattage-> find a good online Wattage Calculator
Amps-> PSU should supply at least 1.25x that listed for the graphics card

Graphics card recommendation:
GTX560?

???I just discovered that graphics cards (maybe other parts) are much cheaper in Canada than the United States. That is odd as it's usually the other way.
 

i just said Brands (only Names) i didn't recommend a model itself, and i have always known thermaltake for it's toughpower / XT series cuz i was going for the XT 775W before getting my Antec TPQ
and refer to the one you're talking to, cuz i don't know if it's me or him
