Thanks all. Yeah, I agonized most over the GPU due to costs. They are way higher proportionally compared to last time I bought/updated a PC. It was tough knowing how inflated they are now. I was also torn between the 2gb and 4gb versions. I will never do multiple-displays while gaming and so far am unimpressed with 3D, so I don't know if I'll need the 4gb. As long as games don't exceed 2gb in the near future, it should be fine. Also wasn't sure if SLI would be better served with the 4gb headroom. We'll see. I do plan to pick up another card before making any other major changes.
The GPU is installed now, btw. Just finished updating drivers. Audio wasn't coming through the hdmi, so may have a bios setting to change, not sure yet.
PS: Thinking about Bioshock Infinite as first game to play on this machine. Also pretty interested in the DayZ standalone.
