I should imagine this build will play all the latest games on High settings with 2xAA. It may not max them out totally, but you should have an enjoyable experience.

Keep your 8gb RAM, as RAM is so cheap these days, why not aye?

In the future I would buy a decent SSD (Crucial M4).

If the 3GB of the 8GB I have is just going unused, it's a waste of money.

I don't do extreme Photoshopping or run VMWare 24/7. So I will probably only be using like 5GB of RAM. I should have just gotten 6. Oh well. Eventually I will get 6GB of the 1600 stuff and sell the 8GB of the 1333. Even 6 is probably overkill.

Also... do boards have to be SSD compatible or will an SSD work right off the bat?

So your Build is hella BETTER!!

Also note our tax here in the UK is ridiculous!
Not to mention that the GTX 560 I bought came with a free copy of Batman: Arkham City (even though it hasn't been released on Steam yet).

I say drop the case and go for an NZXT, they're cheap, and have good airflow. Definitely stretch for the 560ti. It's not worth it to just get the standard gtx 560. The 955 has great overclocking potential, so you should be fine in that field. GET 8GB of RAM. I got 4 and I regret it, my system uses about 30% idling, and I can't do much multitasking without the ram getting used up and the computer bogging down.

I already ordered the GTX 560 and I am content with it. I've read that there isn't a huge difference between the two. Unless those reviews are mistaken.

But it's not like the RAM will help gaming performance. I do a lot of multitasking but not with RAM intense programs like Photoshop or VMWare.

You really think 600w is an overkill for a psu? And I was worried about 750 being to small.lol

The rig looks good ,I have not heard great things about ocz power supplies.

Try and go with 80 plus corsair,there nice.

A lot of OCZ PSUs are on the OCN recommended PSU list, I'm ordering a Fatal1ty 550w today.

It's working flawlessly at the moment. The packaging was excellent, it's very durable and put together very well. It's super quiet too.
