Graphics card: EVGA 015-P3-1480-KR GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Always helps if you mention your budget. You don't mention the type of games you play as this will have a bearing on the GPU.

If you dropped your CPU from a i7 2600K to a i5 2500k then you could use the saving to upgrade your graphics card which is a little dated now.

Als0 I would go with a Z68 motherboard as opposed to a P67 its a little more future friendly.

What RAM have you included?

The budget isn't really an issue. I'm upgrading so that I'm able to stream games like League of Legends, Guild wars 2 and Diablo 3.

Also, I was thinking about getting the GTX 580, would you suggest that? If so, is http://www.ebuyer.com/286943-evga-gtx-580-superclocked-1536mb-gddr5-dvi-hdmi-pci-e-graphics-card-015-p3-1582-kr what I would want? people have said that the PNY customer service isn't to be trusted.

And is http://www.ebuyer.com/291654-asus-p8z68-v-pro-gen3-socket-1155-dvi-vga-hdmi-8-channel-audio-atx-p8z68-v-pro-gen3 the mobo you were talking about? I'm probably gonna get the i7 with that aswell.

Also, the ram I have is PC3-10600 (8GB) which fits the 1333 slot, right?

Would the 800W PSU be enough?

Thanks for the reply btw, apreciated.

The mobo you have chosen I have myself and have found it a great board.As for your CPU unless you are going to do massive amounts of video editing then the i7 2600 is OTT and I recommend getting the i5 2500k.

PSU fine,the graphics card great.I myself am looking to get the Evga GTX 680 but the 580 is a great GPU Evga have a very good name in customer service. PSU is more than enough.RAM also fine.
