Das75, I would definitly get a more powerfull GPU... you will find yourself upset you cheaped out on the most critical component for gaming... the rest of the computer can be a powerhouse but with a mid of the line gpu youll have to use lower graphics settings for games, while someone who has a "slower" computer but good gpu can enjoy al the eye candy new games offer. It sucks thinking you built this awsome gaming machine only to load up your favorite new game and get choppy gameplay, (trust me I made this mistake)! If your even thinking of spending much more and getting an i7, dont and put the money toward a good 200-250 graphics card.
Also, for anyone in the retail industry check out the intel Retailedge program! I just bought an i7 2700k for $150 inc shipping! Thats a $350+ cpu! The retailedge is only open to people who can provide a paystub for aproved retailers of intel products... you have to do a bunch of quizes and learning activities on the site,only takes a hour or two, but its well worth it!
