Yes it will given that you are running a single 1080p monitor.
I think your build is very well rounded for $1100, although If you wanted to bring it below $1000 you could use a GTX 760 for ~$260 and not lose that much more than 10% performance.

Thanks for your comment. Yes, im going to use only 1080p monitor (for now). Using the 760 sounds like a good plan! My only concern is that will it fit the case. i was looking at this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125465&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
There is another for about same price, but it has 1072MHz (using turbo boost). The Gigabyte version has 1150MHz (using turbo boost). So is the 78MHz worth the 1$ price difference? biggrin.gif

Should fit no problem.

Okey, since it should fit would you guys recommend the 760? Is it really THE BEST GPU under 300$?
And will the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO be able to keep the CPU cool, even when its overclocked? (im trying to overclock to about 3,7-4,0GHz)

The Corsair CX 500 is cheap for a good reason its not very well made

Step up to a XFX Core Edition that one is much better made ( Seasonic S12II)
