    Yeah that system will rock 2560x1440 at real high settings. I like everything but...hmm... I would agree with abvolt about the CPU; I think for a new system you really want to get Devil's Canyon 4790K. The stock 4.0GHz and 4.4Ghz turbo give you guaranteed performance at the same, or even lower, price and some 4770Ks cant do 4.4GHz...

    If you wanted to try a bit of OCing (and I presume you do buying the "K" CPU) you might like to think of a closed loop cooler like the H105...better cooling makes it all so much easier...

    I´d recommend two SSDs, one for OS and one for games. And a spinning HD for storage.
