What do you think? I'm not a HUGE gamer but I'd prefer to be able to run most of them and have a quick pc at that

Video Card - EVGA 896-P3-1264-AR e-GeForce GTX260 SSC Edition 896MB DDR3 PCI-Express 2.0 Graphics Card

RAM - Kingston HyperX 4 GB (2x 2GB) PC2-6400 CL5 240-Pin DIMM Kit KHX6400D2K2/4GR

Power Supply - Thermaltake W0116RU Toughpower 750W Power Supply with Active PFC

Misc $300/max

Totals to about $1,625 USD ($1,944 CAD)

So what do you think? Is there anything you would add/take away/change?

Let's see here....

If you don't want triple SLI, you can get a less expensive motherboard like a 750a. Note that with 4GB of RAM, you need a 64-bit operating system to use it all. As for your power supply, the Corsair and Silverstone PSU's are highly suggested. You also don't need an aftermarket cooler unless you overclock, or simply want a cool processor, the Xigmatek HDT-S963 is another cooler to consider. You also need a case deep enough to handle the graphics card.
